Portion Of South Valley Parkway Opens
Part of the South Valley Parkway in Hanover Twp. opened to drivers Monday morning. The section of the $83 million road construction project that opened occupies a stretch of land northwest of the South Cross Valley Expressway/state Route 29. It runs from a connection off of South Main Street near Exit 2 of the expressway to a newly constructed roundabout west of there. Two ramps near that roundabout connect to the South Cross Valley Expressway between exits 2 and 3. Further west of that roundabout, one lane of traffic will be open on a bridge over the expressway and Dundee Road, leading to another roundabout. The planned roadway continues to Middle Road and Kosciuszko Street in Nanticoke, but that section remains under construction. It is scheduled to open sometime in 2019.
