Lehigh Street

Lehigh Street is a major road that connects Emmaus, Pennsylvania in the west to Allentown, Pennsylvania in the east, in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, in the United States. The road is one of six roads that enter and depart Allentown, Pennsylvania, the third largest city in the state.

Lehigh Street is one of several major Allentown-area exits off Interstate 78, which runs from the Holland Tunnel and New York City in the east to the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania area in the west.

Lehigh Street also serves as a major commercial center for the Lehigh Valley. It is particularly well known for its "auto mile", which includes approximately a dozen new and used automobile dealerships. As the road enters Allentown from the west, it also runs by Queen City Airport, an Allentown airport used mostly by small, privately owned aircraft. The South Mall, in Salisbury Township, is located on Lehigh Street.

The Emmaus side of Lehigh Street is the location of Shangy's, a beer distributor with the largest selection of domestic and global beers in the nation (over 3,000 in all). Rodale Press, a leading global publisher of health-related books and magazines, also is located off Lehigh Street, on the Emmaus side of the road.
