Notice of Bridge Closure

Today, Luzerne County Road and Bridge will close the Sleepy Hollow Road Bridge due to advanced section loss of the floor beams. The replacement of the bridge won’t take place until late 2024. Understandably this creates difficulties with adding another Butler Township bridge closure to our list; especially with winter approaching. Thank you for your continued patience while our roads become and remain safe for all who travel them.
