The approximately $570,000 project will replace aging pipe dating as far back as the 1920s. Starting this week, crews will install nearly 2,900 feet of new eight-inch ductile iron pipe along Gay Street between 2nd and 6th Avenues.

Weather permitting, construction is expected to be completed, including final paving restoration, by the end of September.

Construction will take place weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Traffic restrictions will be in place during construction hours, and motorists are urged to find alternate routes.

During construction, customers might experience temporary water service interruptions, discolored water and/or lower than normal water pressure. For more information, contact Pennsylvania American Water’s customer service centre at 1-800-565-7292.
