Bloomsburg To Expand Floodwall

Ground has been broken on a floodwall expansion or extension in Bloomsburg. The $12 million project will protect about 125 homes and about 30 small businesses along with the fire company, public works buildings and the Bloomsburg Middle and High Schools. The newest portion of the floodwall will meet up with the existing floodwall on West 11th Street near the high school football field and will end near Center and West 12th Streets.
