Residents and drivers will see construction crews, changes to traffic patterns, and parking restrictions in work zones. UGI will maintain two lanes of traffic flow. However, drivers should note that turning lanes may be impacted.

UGI will also renew natural gas service to 100 customers as part of the project. Service line replacements require UGI to have access to customer homes to complete upgrades.

Once this gas main and services are installed, the road is expected to be fully repaved from 2nd Avenue to Park Road.
