BGE has started an extensive gas line replacement project in the City. It will be in three phases: phase one will last up to 9 months, the next two phases will last a couple of years. They are up grading the Low-Pressure Gas Lines with High Pressure Lines. Work will be scheduled Monday through Friday, 7 am to 5 pm, no weekends. No Parking Signs posted by BGE should indicate that the restricted parking is only for Mondays-Fridays, 7am to 5pm. Expect delays. Flaggers will be on the job site. Please use caution in the work area.
Phase I will impact Market Street (from Alliance to Congress), Fountain Street (from Union to Market) amd S. Washington (from Alliance to Fountain) and Girard Street (from Lodge to S. Washington.) This project will impact about 100 customers. BGE is replacing the 70 year old gas line with a new one.
