UGI Announces Blakely Infrastructure Project
24 May 2021
UGI Utilities, Inc. will begin a natural gas main replacement project in the Borough of Blakely on Wednesday, May 26, 2021. This project is part of the Company’s multi-year infrastructure betterment initiative.
The natural gas main replacement project will take place from the 300 through 1400 blocks of Main Street, between Lincoln Avenue and Hospital Street.
More than 3,700 feet of non-contemporary main will be replaced. This project will also renew gas service lines to 36 customers, most of whom are businesses.
Construction hours will take place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. During construction, residents will experience lane closures and traffic delays. Parking also will be restricted on those blocks during construction hours. Flaggers will direct traffic during construction.
The project is expected to be completed by the early August.
“UGI recognizes area residents will be inconvenienced during this project. We will work to complete construction in a timely manner,” Tim 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 Blakely for their cooperation and assistance in the planning and execution of this project.”
