Emrick Applauds Local Bridge Openings

MT. BETHEL – Two Northampton County bridges that had been under repair are in the process of opening to traffic, according to state Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Northampton). The Route 512/Main Street bridge over Brushy Meadow Creek in Bangor opened today, two months ahead of schedule. The bridge that connects Main Street in Tatamy with Uhler Road in Forks Township will open to traffic Wednesday, July 10, following a 10 a.m. ribbon cutting.

Emrick issued this statement after receiving the news from PennDOT:

“Anyone who uses these bridges on a regular basis is pleased to hear news concerning an end to their travel troubles. We are happy to be able to deliver this information, considering the problems these closings have caused.

“Grace Industries of Bath, the general contract for the Bangor project, and Bi-State Construction of Easton, which is overseeing the Tatamy Bridge project, should be applauded for their efforts. In the case of the Route 512 bridge, the nearly 8,800 vehicles that use that route on a daily basis will be very happy to see detour signs no longer in place.”

Questions about this or any other legislative issue should be directed to Emrick’s Mt. Bethel office at (570) 897-0401 or his Nazareth office at (610) 746-5090.
