The Parker Street Bridge Replacement is one in a package of four bridge replacements that comprise the Scranton Local Bridge Project. PennDOT, with the support of the City of Scranton, will replace the Parker Street Bridge, built in 1964, which runs over the Lackawanna River in Lackawanna County.
This bridge is currently restricted to one lane due to superstructure deterioration. This bridge replacement will alleviate the weight restriction and return the bridge to two lanes. This project will also include pavement resurfacing along Parker Street from Boulevard Avenue to North Main Avenue and a traffic signal upgrade for the intersection of Parker Street and North Main Ave.

Susquehanna Civil Engineering, Inc. will be in the vicinity of the Parker Street Bridge to collect “Survey and Mapping” of the bridge, roadway, and river. These activities will support Preliminary Design Activities for this bridge replacement. The survey activities are anticipated to last 1 to 2 weeks.
