The scheduled reopening of the bridge carrying Camp Meeting Road over Saucon Creek in Upper Saucon Township, Lehigh County, has been delayed until mid-to-late September. The bridge was previously scheduled to be completed in August. However, flooding at the bridge site has adversely affected the construction schedule.
Motorists will continue to be detoured around the bridge closure by way of Route 378, Route 309 and Saucon Valley Road until the new bridge opens.
In the event of more unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.
This bridge is referred to as JV-177 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.
