2/28/2024 – People’s Natural Gas (PNG) will be installing a new gas main and service line beginning on Monday, March 4, 2024. They will begin near 1st Street on S Main and work their way toward Main Street before turning east on Main. The work on S Main is expected to take 4-6 weeks. Traffic will still be able to drive through as only one lane is scheduled for closure. The Borough does not yet have a good timeline for Main Street but this post will be updated once we know more, which will be toward the end of the work on S Main.

During the first week on S Main, progress will be slow as PNG does exploratory potholing to ensure that the pipe can be installed in a straight line once they start trenching. They are expecting to be working on the river side of S Main. It is likely that two excavators/backhoes will be staged on the street and that four parking spots will be used for the equipment. PennDOT gave PNG work times of 7am to 5pm.

Waste Management has been notified that the work will begin and they will make an effort to collect trash and recycling prior to when PNG begins work so if you live in that part of town, it is recommended that you have your trash out the night before or very early on Tuesdays. If your trash is missed, please call the Borough at 412-781-0546 and speak with someone from the administration office (option 1) to notify us. Per usual, you need to notify us by Wednesday so that we can get WM to send a recovery truck, which they do by Thursday.
