Allentown bridge rehab to detour northbound traffic

By ,

Work is expected to begin today on a project to rehabilitate the Oxford Drive Bridge over the Little Lehigh River in Allentown.

Heim Construction Co. of Pottsville is the general contractor on the $367,670 project, which will close the bridge in the northbound direction.

The project includes bridge deck overlaying, expansion dam replacement, beam repairs and substructure and parapet repairs.

The bridge is a three-span concrete I-beam bridge built in 1960 and rehabilitated last in 1980. It has an average daily traffic volume of about 9,600 vehicles.

Work is expected to be complete in September.
