UGI Announces Re-start of Harrisburg Construction Projects
05 May 2020
UGI Utilities, Inc. will re-start a number of natural gas main replacement projects in the City of Harrisburg throughout the month of May. These projects are part of the Company’s multi-year infrastructure betterment initiative.
These projects will take place with a modified construction schedule in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, UGI construction will focus on replacing gas mains and reduce the need to enter customer homes during the COVID-19 emergency.
