Major Bridge Replacement Project Coming to Luzerne County

LUZERNE COUNTY, Pa. -- Get ready to see plenty of road work in Luzerne County. PennDOT plans to rebuild more than a dozen bridges over the next few years.

Five are along Interstate 80 between the Mifflinville exit and the junction with Interstate 81.

The other 10 are along Interstate 81 between the West Hazleton exit and Highland Park Boulevard exit in Wilkes-Barre.

PennDOT has not said exactly which bridges are being replaced.

Officials tell Newswatch 16 they expect work to start in 2021 and end by 2023.

    Will these new bridges last longer than 25 years? Doubt it. Maybe PennDOT needs to research the engineering designs of the Nicholson bridge. And that was built by real men and mules!
