Mayor Nicole Mackiewicz
set to begin as part of South Valley Parkway project
is planned on the final roundabout in the South Valley Parkway project and a detour
will be in place Sept. 3 to Oct. 31.
The intersection at Prospect Street and
Middle Road will be closed with a detour posted.
The work will take place near
Luzerne County Community College and Greater Nanticoke Area High School, so motorists
should follow the posted detour.
This construction project is coinciding with
a second roundabout and access road that is being built by a private contractor
to access the new Hanover 9 Industrial Park. The Hanover 9 closure is on The South
Valley Parkway, between Middle Road and state Route 29. Both projects are anticipated
to be completed by Oct. 31.
