Now and Then


Welcome to another vacation photography expedition.

It's seems like it's taking an eternity, but in actuality, the project began only seven months ago.

I was there when Scranton's West Lackawanna Avenue Bridge closed to traffic in July. A replacement was long overdue. It's an important gateway to the downtown. It's near the Steamtown National Historic Site-- a big tourist attraction and the bridge looked absolutely awful.

Thankfully, that's all history. The old bridge is gone. Unfortunately, the arches beneath couldn't be saved. The pace should pick up, now that spring is here (almost). The new bridge should be open by the end of the year.
