Safety Fence Cut, People Continue Crossing Crumbling Bridge

WILKES-BARRE – Luzerne County officials are urging people not to cross a dangerous bridge over Solomon Creek.

Newswatch 16 found that an orange safety fence on the Division Street Bridge has been cut, and people have been walking over the span this weekend.

Crews attempted to block off the bridge last week, after a portion of the crumbling span gave way and collapsed into the creek.

The Division Street Bridge has been closed to vehicle traffic since 2011.

It’s unclear when the Luzerne County Road and Bridge Department plans to have the bridge dismantled.
