No big issues today, just a little fun with construction. This is the new intermodal transportation center on South Washington Street in Wilkes-Barre. I took this picture because I thought the towering elevator shafts looked neat.

This is the under-side of the West Lackawanna Avenue bridge in Scranton. The bridge will soon be history. Construction crews have cleared away some of the brush and trees beneath the bridge, and now you can get a good look at the architectural features. Enjoy it while you can, because the bridge is being demolished. The construction company promises the new bridge will also be architecturally pleasing.

And finally, a little good news... As Newswatch 16 reported the other evening, the 60 year old Markowitz Brothers newsstand has found a new home. It's just down the street, in the 200 block of Linden Street. The current building, at Wyoming and Linden is being sold, and the newsstand has to move.
