Widen­ing Route 22

The Morning Call - - LOCAL NEWS -

Re­gional plan­ners have al­ready started work­ing to widen Route 22 be­tween 15th Street and Air­port Road, and new plans would look to widen it be­tween Air­port Road and Route 512. The two projects would im­prove the con­gested heart of the Le­high Val­ley’s busiest artery.

Pen­nDOT wanted to widen other parts of the high­way be­fore 2040, but those high-priced projects look un­likely to be funded any time soon. Pen­nDOT pro­posed spend­ing a to­tal of $801.1 million to widen Route 22 be­tween Route 512 and Route 33 and from Route 309 to 15th Street, but they were left off the draft.
