Local Road Detours
A Work Zone Traffic Control Analysis was completed in conformance with PennDOT’s Traffic Engineering Manual, Publication 46, March 2013 Edition. The report includes analyses to identify anticipated delays that may result in detours during construction. See the project schedule below for the estimated construction start dates. The following detours are anticipated:
- The Lower Macungie Road Bridge Replacement (S.R. 2012), which crosses over the PA Turnpike at MP A53.38, will require a detour of traffic. One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained while the bridge is constructed off-alignment. A two-week detour of Lower Macungie Road is required to complete the tie-ins to the new alignment. Longer-term detours for the work occurring at its intersections with Millrace Road and Little Spur Road are required.
- The East Texas Road Bridge (T.R. 471), which crosses over the PA Turnpike at MP A54.29, will be reconstructed, resulting in a detour of traffic along East Texas Road.
- The Hamilton Boulevard Bridge Replacement (SR 0222), which crosses over the PA Turnpike at MP A55.31, will be reconstructed, resulting in a westbound, eastbound, or full westbound/eastbound detour of traffic along Hamilton Boulevard.
Detours will be further refined and coordinated with the municipalities and PennDOT District 5-0.
