Hugh Moore Bridge Could Reopen This Week
After $1.4 million repair, bridge leading into Hugh Moore Park is ready for traffic again.
The bridge at Easton's Hugh Moore Park should reopen sometime this week, city public works director Dave Hopkins said Tuesday.
The bridge -- which connects Lehigh Drive in West Easton to the park -- closed to drivers and pedestrians last year after a structural flaw was discovered.
Hopkins said the state needs to do a final inspection before the bridge can reopen.
He gave the update on the bridge as part of a preview of city public works projects for 2013.
- Mapping the city's street signs, all 15,000 or so of them.
- Making improvements to the Pine Street garage, which should wrap up in time for the yearly springtime uptick in Crayola tourism.
- Working with PennDOT to improve the timing on the streetlights along Northampton Street.
- Improvements to several city buildings, including all three firehouses.
