Bridge Closure Date Scheduled

Bridge Closure Date Scheduled

The bridge on West Gordon Street and over Jordan Creek in the City of Allentown is expected to be closed for nearly nine months for reconstruction beginning on Monday, November 30.  

The more than $3.3 million project was scheduled to begin this past March but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic which at the time had halted all construction projects.  The bridge is expected to reopen by August 24, 2021.

Detours will be set in place during the period.

Normal eastbound travelers should travel south on Fifth Street to east on Hamilton Street to north on American Parkway to Gordon Street.  Normal westbound travelers should travel south on American Parkway to west on Linden Street and north on Sixth Street.

Kinsley Construction, Inc. from York, PA is the successful low bidder on the project.
