South Valley Parkway Construction Underway

Progress continues to be made on the South Valley Parkway project that will improve traffic flow and safe travel in Luzerne County.

Borton-Lawson performed the preliminary engineering and final design of the project with construction beginning in January of 2016. With multiple stakeholders involved, the transportation team of Borton-Lawson coordinated with PennDOT, utilities, and various agencies to complete the final design within the allotted design schedule.



The project creates a new 3-mile, two-lane road, running from Middle Road and Kosciuszko Street in Nanticoke to South Main Street, east of State Route 29 in Hanover Township. The new route bypasses South Main Street and Middle Road in the Askam section of Hanover Township. The project creates the first roundabout corridor in the state, with six roundabouts providing safe and efficient access to Luzerne County Community College and the City of Nanticoke.

At a press conference held on land that will become part of the new road, PennDOT and local and state officials gathered to talk about the positive impacts this project means for the area, including the benefits to those travelling to Luzerne County Community College.

The project is scheduled for completion by the summer of 2020.
