Hokendauqua Bridge to stay open through December

Thursday, December 6, 2012 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

There is both good news and bad news for the hundreds of motorists who daily drive to their destination via Lehigh Street in Hokendauqua or who utilize the Hokendauqua-North Catasauqua Bridge.

Motorists, most of whom live in the North Catasauqua and Hokendauqua area and beyond, are expected to receive at least a one-month reprieve by having the bridge remain open through December, rather than shut down for construction as initially expected.

The borough owns land behind the municipal water works plant on the corner of St. John and Walnut streets. The steeply wooded lot can be best accessed from the parking lot at the school.
