Because of the exceptional highway infrastructure that is one of the dominant characteristics of life in Luzerne County, travel throughout the county is about as easy as any place you will ever choose to live.  In addition to the two main arterials – I-81 (north and south) and I-80 (east and west), our residents travel on a network of well maintained highways. Route 309, including the Cross Valley Expressway, is a major arterial through the county. Route 29, including the South Cross Valley Expressway, is a major link between I-81 and Route 11 on the west bank of the Susquehanna River. The South Cross Valley Expressway is the major arterial for the largest industrial/ business park in the county.Depending on where you choose to live in relation to your workplace, it is likely that your morning commute might be no more than ten minutes, and certainly no more than thirty minutes, on a high speed expressway or an accessible arterial road that will take you directly to and from work.  The county’s two public bus systems (HPT in Hazleton and LCTA in the Wilkes- Barre area) offer numerous get-to-work options.
