UGI restarts construction in Lancaster

(Lancaster)–UGI Utilities, Inc. is resuming a number of natural gas main replacement projects in the City of Lancaster this month.  Those projects will take place with a modified construction schedule during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Work is focused on replacing gas mains located in the street, allowing the company to limit interactions with customers and reduce the need to enter customer homes.  Service line updates that require access to homes and businesses will be postponed to a later date due to social distancing guidelines.

Construction will re-start on the following streets the week of May 4:

— the 500 block of Juniata Street

— the first block (0-99) of West James Street

— the 600 block of East End Street

— the 100 block of South Prince Street

— Lime Street, starting at East Vine Street and progressing toward East Lemon Street.

Additional construction projects will re-start later this month, including:

— the 300 block of North Prince Street the week of May 11

— the 700 block of East End Street the week of May 18.

Work will typically occur between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.  There may be extended weekday and Saturday construction hours if conditions permit.

During construction, residents will experience traffic delays and road closures.  Parking also will be restricted on the affected blocks during construction hours.  Flaggers will direct traffic during construction.
