UGI Gas Main Project
Please check back here for project updates that we will post as soon we receive them from UGI.
Project is underway as of Monday September 17th, beginning at West High and Fulton St., working eastward toward Market Square, continuing through the south side of Market Square to Main St., then from Main St. on the north side of Market Square to Charlotte St. Various tie-ins will occur at intersections along the route.
Work is scheduled to occur during the following weekly time period:
Sundays starting at 6 PM through Friday mornings ending at 6 AM.
During this time period, daytime work hours will be between the hours of 9 AM and 3 PM, and evening work hours will be between the hours of 6 PM and 6 AM.
Street closures and detours will NOT be utilized – flaggers will be in place during working hours, with lane restrictions in place as needed.
Adjacent residents and businesses will be receiving direct notifications from UGI regarding any planned service interruptions along with any other pertinent information.
This part of the project will last approximately 2 months.
Upon completion of the West High portion of the project, the work will shift to South Cherry and West Stiegel St., and then to South Penn St. from West Stiegel northward to West High St. Work associated with the abandonment of the old gas mains will occur at several intersections upon completion of the new main installations. This work will last approximately 2 months. There will be no overnight work or full street closures associated with this portion of the project. Adjacent residents and businesses will be receiving direct notifications from UGI regarding any planned service interruptions along with any other pertinent information.

South Hazel Street – This project, extending from High Street to Stiegel Street, will utilize the full-depth reclamation process which will essentially reconstruct the entire street.
NOTE: Due to a number of factors, including UGI’s plans for replacing a gas main in the Spring of 2019, the S Hazel Street project is being postponed until the Summer of 2019.
Memorial Park Veterans’ Memorial – Plans are underway for a veteran’s memorial at Memorial Park. This project is being undertaken by a group of volunteer veterans.

The purpose of the 2017 street projects was primarily that of preventive maintenance in order to extend the life of the affected streets and to allow the Borough to utilize our limited funds in a more efficient manner. Similar to what many people do with residential driveways and parking lots, the seal coat helps to prevent water from seeping into and below the surface. This water, along with the freeze/thaw cycles, are the primary cause of pot holes and more significant street damage, which results in the need for more extensive (and expensive) repairs.
Wolf Street Parking Lot – New lighting has been installed, enhancing night-time visibility and safety, and the surface has been re-sealed. The Cardboard Dumpsters have been permanently relocated to the parking lot at Logan Park off of Ferdinand Street.
Police/EMS Building Project: Construction is complete. The police are now operating out of the new building. Emergency Services Campus
