EDWARDSVILLE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Construction crews are set to begin work repairing a Luzerne County mall parking lot that has been plagued by potholes.

Eyewitness News spoke to a crew at the West Side Mall Monday morning. We are told work is set to begin repairing the lot early this afternoon when the rain stops falling.

“Thank God! We drive through there all the time and I don’t know how many times I bottomed out. Just really believed I’m going to have to go to a shop to fix my car. They are finally doing something,” said Tyler, a driver in Edwardsville.

We first told you about the problem back in June when viewers contacted the I-Team to let us know driver’s cars were being damaged by the holes.

“I was thrilled! The potholes were outrageous and some may have lost their whole car in one of them,” said Mary Ristick of Shavertown.

We reached out to Signature Acquisitions about the work to learn more about the scope of the repairs, but we have not heard a response from the company.
