Motorists should expect a single left lane closure on PA 33 southbound, between Hecktown Road and William Penn Highway, on Wednesday, May 9 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, as construction begins to wrap up for replacement of the bridge carrying PA 33 South over US 22 in Bethlehem Township, Northampton County.
The bridge, which is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project, is anticipated to be completed in June. When the PA 33 South bridge
is complete, work will begin on the bridge carrying PA 33 North over US 22 in Bethlehem Township.
Schedules are subject to change.
This PA 33 South bridge
replacement is referred to as JV-198 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.
