Allentown Road Bridge Construction
We received notice from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) that construction will begin at the bridge on Allentown Road and John Fries Highway over Licking Creek. The bridge sustained serious damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ida in September 2021.
Beginning Wednesday, October 13th , through late December, periodic lane closures will be in place on Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM through late December.
PennDOT’s contractor will address undermining or scour by repairing and reinforcing the support systems and foundations at these structures to maintain them as safe and efficient crossings for the traveling public.
Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur. The schedule is weather dependent.
