Confluence of the Monocacy Creek and the Lehigh River
40 36' 84 N
75 22' 48 W

The Monocacy Creek is a tributary of the Lehigh, entering on the north side of the river (river left). It runs into the river just south of the New Street Bridge in Bethlehem. The creek flows beneath the canal by means of an aqueduct that allows the canal water to bridge over the span of the creek. This is the last of the canal’s existing aqueducts. The narrow concrete structure that exists today is a replacement for the original wooden flume structure.
