Digging started, large star to be placed

The Main Street Improvement Project "We Dig Main Street" at Main and Walnut streets began on August 27. Construction is expected to take six to eight weeks to complete.

Some traffic flow will be interrupted due to the elimination of one lane, however, it is not expected to cause extended delays. There will be two-way traffic for most of the construction period.

Bethlehem police have released the final tally of arrests made at this year's Musikfest, and the numbers, particularly for violence-related incidents, are down from last year.

Arrests for underage drinking and public drunkenness have remained steady – around 20 incidents each – while a mere eight charges of disorderly conduct were filed this year as opposed to last year's 33. Disorderly conduct is the typical charge for people fighting, police said.

The list provided by police did not include DUI arrests believed to be Musikfest related.
