Borough to consider weight limits on bridge over creek

Thursday, May 9, 2013 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

Although far smaller than the George Washington Bridge in New York City and even the Coplay-Northampton Bridge, the small span on Howertown Road is a concern for Northampton Borouch Council and the administration.

Most motorists who cross the bridge – which has no name – most likely don't even realize they are crossing a bridge.

However, a recent surge of triaxle trucks rumbling across Howertown Road and onto the bridge has led to complaints from residents about noise and dirt from the trucks, some of which pass by in the middle of the night.
