Officials in Upper Saucon Township shared a project update on their website Friday, in which they said that work by contractors will begin on Monday, March 25, weather permitting.

The work area will be between W. Rock Road and the Rt. 309 south ramp at W. Saucon Valley Road, it said. West Saucon Valley Road intersects with Rt. 309 opposite Center Valley Parkway.

“There will be some limited work on the underside of the overpasses at Vera Cruz Road,” the update noted.

According to township officials, the work will also include the installation of a four-way stop at the intersection of the I-78 eastbound ramp to W. Rock Road and Heckman’s Lane, which is on the south side of the highway’s Summit Lawn exit.

Officials did not provide a timeline for the completion of the road work.

  • So let me get this straight. Upper Saucon wants to add stops on on West Rocks Road so the the cars exiting I78 can continue to run the stop sign at the top of the ramp? Let’s protect the law breakers at the expensive of the locals. Sounds like something the Biden Administration thought up!

  • I have an idea. How about installing one of the new automatic license plate readers LEO’s are touting and warn, then fine every car that blows through the STOP SIGNS already in place?
