On July 5, 2005, State Route 92 in Susquehanna County was designated as the Viaduct Valley Way Scenic Byway. After further approval of Nicholson Borough, Nicholson Township, Lemon Township, Tunkhannock Township, and the Wyoming County Commissioners, the byway designation of Route 92 was extended into Wyoming County to bring the total length of the byway to 37.3 miles. State Route 92 is in the heart of Nicholson, PA and winds its way under the Nicholson Bridge.
This designation is vital to the economic stability of Nicholson and the region. By promoting tourism, the byway highlights the natural and man-made beauty of the Endless Mountains to attract visitors. From the breathtaking views of Fall Foliage to the imposing grandeur of the Tunkhannock (Creek) Viaduct in Nicholson and the Starrucca (Creek) Viaduct in Lanesboro, there is plenty to see and do along this Route of the Famous Viaducts.
Managed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, byways qualify for federal funds to pay for improvements such as paved shoulders, interpretative signs, and scenic overlooks. There are currently 21 byways throughout Pennsylvania. For more information, please visit: http://www.visitpa.com/scenic-byways?page=1.

We support the Viaduct Valley Way Scenic Byway and will be looking for ways to promote this byway, which will ultimately benefit our town and region.
