Road Closure To Impact Traffic In Wilkes-Barre

January 20, 2018 GMT

WILKES-BARRE — South Franklin Street from Anheiser Lane to Market Street will be closed from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, the city announced Friday. The mayor’s office noted, however, that Franklin Street from Northampton Street to Anheiser Lane will be opened as a two-way street for that period of time. All garages and businesses between Northampton Street and Anheiser Lane, including Boscov’s, will be accessible using Franklin Street. Signage for the road closure will be located at the intersection of Northampton and South Franklin Street. Additionally, city police will be present for traffic control. The temporary inconvenience is part of the ongoing renovations to the Citizens Bank Building. — STAFF REPORT
