UGI Announces Wilkes-Barre Infrastructure Project
28 Oct 2020
UGI Utilities, Inc. will begin a natural gas infrastructure project in the City of Wilkes-Barre beginning Monday, November 2. This project is part of the Company’s multi-year infrastructure betterment initiative.
The natural gas project is being completed ahead of Pennsylvania American Water Company’s scheduled water main and services replacement project in the same area. The UGI project will take place on Kidder Street from Bowman Street to Conyngham Avenue and will renew gas service lines to 108 homes and businesses along the route.
Construction hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. During the renewal process, individual customers will experience a brief outage. UGI crews will need access to the premises to re-light appliances.
Motorists in the area will experience traffic delays and road closures. Parking also will be restricted on those blocks during construction hours. Flaggers will direct traffic during construction.
The project is expected to be completed in February 2021.
