City Streetscape project continuing


First Posted: 6/3/2013

Sidewalk construction was under way Monday morning on East Market Street in Wilkes-Barre. The work is part of the city’s Streetscape Phase V along Public Square, and city business owners seem to be coping with the inconveniences caused by the $1 million project. The construction, done by Popple Construction Co., is a continuation of the already completed $10 million in improvements that include decorative lighting, sidewalk improvements, benches and bike racks and planted trees among other curb-appeal items.
