A helicopter lifts cables in place at the construction site of the Hokendauqua Bridge last Tuesday. The cable is used to pull PPL power lines into place at a temporary location while the old bridge is being demolished and the new one is being constructed. According to North Catasauqua Council President Joseph Keglovits, TV cable company and Verizon lines must be placed in a similar manner before demolition work can continue. The bridge connects North Catasauqua and Hokendauqua, over the Lehigh River.
