Limeport Pike to Close in Lower Milford Township for Replacement of Bridge over a Tributary to Saucon Creek

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Engineering District 5 announced today Limeport Pike will close Saturday to allow workers to replace a bridge over a tributary to Saucon Creek in Lower Milford Township, Lehigh County.
Beginning Saturday, June 23, and lasting through mid-August, Limeport Pike will be closed and detoured between West Saucon Valley and Blue Church roads. Access will be maintained to all properties.
The posted passenger vehicle detour utilizes West Saucon Valley Road, Lanark Road, and Blue Church Road. The posted truck detour utilizes Emmaus Road, Limeport Road, Brunner Road, Vera Cruz Road, Lanark Road, and Blue Church Road. Motorists should anticipate delays and use caution driving through the area.

Work on the project includes replacing the existing concrete encased steel I-beam bridge with a pre-cast reinforced concrete box culvert, new roadway approaches, new guide rail, and new line painting.

Road-Con, Inc. of West Chester, Pa., is the general contractor on the $959,296 project that is expected to be complete in October.

The Limeport Pike Bridge was constructed in 1928. It is 12 feet long, and 30 feet wide. The new culvert will be 54 feet long and 10 feet wide. This section of Limeport Pike has an average daily traffic volume of 5,628 vehicles.
