The City of Bethlehem has plans to replace the Lynn Avenue Bridge in South Bethlehem by the end of 2013, according to The Express Times.
Officials revealed the plans Monday night to replace the 1925 bridge with one that is 10 feet wider and accessible to buses and trucks. The article quotes Project Engineer Frank Seney, ‘The bridge is substantially, structurally deficient," he said. "It's very old, so it's going to be replaced with a more modern structure ....’
The City will pay about 5 percent of the cost, according to officials, with the rest coming from state and federal dollars.
