West Pittston Getting a New Look
Streetscaping plans unveiled
West Pittston residents got the first look at the plans to redo some borough streets damaged in the 2011 flood during the February 2 Council meeting. Streetscaping plans for Routes 11 and 92 in the vicinity of the Fort Jenkins and Water Street Bridges and Luzerne Avenue were explained by Tom Reilly, borough engineer. Reilly showed sketches of the areas involved as well as photos of the new street lights. The project is being funded through Federal disaster aid grants awarded in 2013.
The most dramatic changes will be at the Fort Jenkins Bridge intersection (sketch above)where the road will be narrowed by grassy lawns and trees. Luzerne Avenue will have sewer and drainage improvements as well as curbs, newly planted tree lawns and trees. Other streets flooded in 2011 will be paved. Blackman, Excelsior and Race Streets and part of Susquehanna and Montgomery Avenues have already been paved.Work will begin as soon as the weather permits.
