West Pittston to Start Construction of Disaster Recovery Project
WNEP-TV – February 4, 2016
WEST PITTSTON – Almost five years after historic September 2011 flooding temporarily washed out part of Luzerne County, one community there is on the rebound. Later this month, crews will start part of a disaster recovery project on Luzerne Avenue to make improvements. A sketch shows roads and sidewalks will be replaced, and new streetlights and vegetation will be added from Susquehanna Avenue to Spring Street. But perhaps most importantly, “this is going to replace all the sewers and in this area and certainly alleviate the local flooding,” said Brian Thornton, W. Pittston Council President. When the project is finished, officials hope businesses will come back. “Beautification as well as the new infrastructure will be an attraction for the businesses,” said Tom Reilly, an engineer with the borough. Construction is expected to start later this month.
