Got back from 5 week trip to Ukraine not that long ago, so here are some veery quick updates
Coal Street reconstruction is now in active progress, and judging from all the heavy materials and equipment on and around Wilkes-Barre Boulevard, it looks like they're doing Phase I and II simultaneously.
Public Square/S Main Street is being redone with some sort of construction going one next to Boscov's. Will have to check it out more closely.
New 8th Street bridge appears to be very near completion.
... and probably more items, which i haven't got a chance to see yet. merry Christmas to all.
