BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - A long-delayed industrial museum in Bethlehem could get a financial boost as it prepares for a mid-2016 opening.

The Morning Call reports (https://bit.ly/1KGGUJt ) the National Museum of Industrial History and Lehigh University have reached a tentative settlement involving a legal tussle over a $5.5 million trust.

The museum’s board chairman and president, L. Charles Marcon, says the museum reached the agreement with Lehigh’s then-interim President Kevin Clayton in the spring, and the details have been under review.

Marcon didn’t disclose details of the settlement. He says it’s “amicable.”

A spokesman for Lehigh University couldn’t be reached Wednesday.

The museum broke ground in the fall and plans to open next year. Marcon says the museum has enough money to start construction, thanks to a $3 million anonymous donation.
