Work on this project includes milling, concrete patching, paving, joint cleaning and sealing, new pavement markings, and guide rail updates on US 22 between PA 191 and 25th Street in Bethlehem and Palmer townships. The project also includes milling, patching and paving all ramps at the US 22 and PA 33 interchange.
A long-term (24-hour a day) lane restriction will be in place on US 22 west starting May 29 and lasting approximately one month. Expect significant delays and use caution driving through the work zone.
Through traffic on US 22 west should consider using Interstate 78 west as an alternate route.
The contractor intends to work first on US 22 west, then move to US 22 east followed by the ramps at the US 22 and PA 33 interchange.
Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training.
