I-80 Nescopeck Creek Bridges
The I-80 Nescopeck Creek Bridges are dual structures (one eastbound and one westbound) built in 1965 and with preservation repairs last conducted in 2005. These bridges cross over Nescopeck Creek in Black Creek Township, Luzerne County. Combined, the bridges carry an average of 33,000 vehicles per day, approximately 36 percent of which is truck traffic.
The purpose of the I-80 Nescopeck Creek Bridges Project is to provide a sustainable travel way/crossing that accommodates interstate highway freight and mobility while providing a safe and efficient highway for motorists over Nescopeck Creek. The project will replace and widen the bridges to provide wider shoulders that meet current standards and accommodate and facilitate future maintenance activities on the bridge. Once complete, the new bridges will improve traffic flow, extend the life of existing infrastructure, and enhance traffic safety.
