UGI Announces Berwick Infrastructure Project
29 Apr 2019
UGI Utilities, Inc. will begin a natural gas main replacement project in the Borough of Berwick beginning the week of May 6. This project is part of the Company’s multi-year infrastructure betterment initiative.
The natural gas main replacement project will take place on various streets bordered by East Second Street north to East Ninth Street and Market Street west to Oak Street. Portions of Robbins Street, West Fifth Street, and West 3rd Street will also be affected.
Construction will generally take place from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., but some night work is expected. The project is expected to be completed by the end of October.
This project will also renew gas service lines to approximately 132 homes and businesses.
During construction, residents and motorists should expect road closures, parking restrictions, and traffic detours. Motorists should consider alternate routes.
“UGI recognizes area residents will be inconvenienced during this project. We will work to complete construction in a timely manner,” Timothy Angstadt, vice president of operations, said. “This project is part of UGI’s continuing commitment to provide safe and reliable natural gas service to our customers and our communities. We appreciate the community’s patience and understanding as we make this long-term system improvement. We also thank officials from Berwick for their cooperation and assistance in the planning and execution of this project.”
UGI Utilities will spend more than $187.5 million in fiscal year 2019 to replace approximately 64 miles of natural gas mains and complete a variety of system enhancement projects.
