Motorists traveling on Basin Street in the city of Allentown should be aware of lane restrictions that may begin as early as Monday, January 6.
UGI will be performing utility work on Basin Street from Union Street to Auburn Street and will necessitate a traffic pattern set up that will include lane closures and lane shifts. The traffic pattern will be in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week for approximately six weeks.
Both south bound lanes will be closed in the construction zone and south bound traffic will be shifted into one of the north bound lanes. One lane will be open for both north and south bound traffic at all times. The sidewalk will also be closed, and a temporary walkway will be installed for pedestrian access through the work zone.
