Brookside Levee Repair Project
Workers from Panzitta Enterprises repair part of the levee on North Washington Street in the Brookside section of Wilkes-Barre that was damaged by the flood of 2011.
As a part of the Brookside repair project, North Washington Street between Wilkes-Barre Boulevard and Brookside Street will be closed this week and most of next week. The closure is necessary to allow construction crews proper access to complete repairs. Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton said the project is fully reimbursable and pre-approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.
