UGI Announces Wilkes-Barre Infrastructure Project to Cause Lane Closure

04 Mar 2021

UGI Utilities, Inc. will perform maintenance on its natural gas facilities on the 500 block of North River Street between Maple Street and Chestnut Street in Wilkes-Barre beginning Monday, March 8, 2021.

The work will start at 6 a.m. on Monday and is expected to last through Thursday, March 11, weather permitting. UGI crews will be working 24 hours per day during the project.

One lane will be closed during the duration of the work and parking will be restricted. Construction is expected to cause significant traffic delays and will impact bus routes. Flaggers will direct traffic during construction. UGI encourages motorists to seek alternate routes if possible.

UGI recognizes this work will be an inconvenience and will work as quickly as possible to complete construction.

UGI Utilities, Inc. is a natural gas and electric utility company that serves more than 730,000 customers. Additional information about UGI Utilities, Inc. is available at Follow us on Facebook: or Twitter:
