Northampton Press’ features in 1999

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement Company Memorial Museum in Columns

Today, I am reading a new publication of the Northampton Press — the year, 1999.

Some things change; some do not. The Coplay-Northampton Bridge was a feature story. After years of pleading by motorists and residents, the bridge was closed to traffic in order to have the bridge milled and the deck resurfaced with a fresh coat of blacktop. It was to be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic for four to six weeks. The bridge has detour signs on both sides in Northampton and Coplay.
