Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners, contractor on the Route 222 (Hamilton Street) bridge project over Cedar Creek in Allentown, is postponing this week's scheduled start of the project.
Construction on the bridge in the vicinity of the Hamilton Family Diner is now expected to begin during the week of February 12 and be complete in December. During this time, one-lane of traffic will be maintained north and south through the work zone.
Access for local businesses located north and south of the bridge on Hamilton Street will be maintained during construction phases. Motorists can access these businesses southbound via a short detour along South 21st Street to Reading Road and Yocco Drive. Motorists can access businesses located north of the bridge by following a short detour along North Saint Elmo Street and West Linden and North 20th Street.
