Built between 1926 and 1929, the Market Street Bridge is one of the longest and most elaborately decorated bridges in Pennsylvania. Flanked by its distinctive eagles, the 1,400 foot long structure spans the Susquehanna River, connecting Wilkes-Barre to Kingston, and connecting the people of today to the heroes of the past. Each eagle sits straight-backed and proud above a plaque that pays homage to the perseverance, patriotism, and fortitude of United States soldiers. It is a daily reminder of the courageous men and women who protect our nation.
