Weather permitting, Hamilton Street between Seventh and Eighth streets in the City of Allentown will be closed beginning at 6am on Saturday, March 22, 2014 through Saturday, March 29, 2014 for infrastructure work.
The reason for the road closure is to complete a very deep tie-in and manhole installation to the existing sanitary sewer located on the south side of Hamilton Street proper. Work will include road surface removal, trench and manhole excavations up 17 feet deep, pipe and manhole installation, backfill and road surface repair.
Due to the depth and width of the excavation, the work area cannot be temporary plated to resume traffic in the evenings. No interruption of sewer service to businesses or residents is expected.
