Motorists who travel I-78 West between the Rt. 33 and Rt. 412 (Hellertown) exits in Lower Saucon Township this weekend can expect to encounter what PennDOT called ‘significant’ delays for bridge dam repairs.
According to a news release from PennDOT, there will be a lane restriction in place in that area from 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15 through 6 a.m. Monday, Feb. 18.
Through traffic on I-78 is encouraged to use Rt. 33 north and Rt. 22 west as a detour around the work zone.
Others should “expect significant delays and please use caution driving through the work zone,” PennDOT said.
