The PECO gas main project is nearing completion. PECO’s subcontractor, Kehoe, is performing the final restoration of the trenches. Today the permanent restoration of the trench took place on Shoemaker Avenue between Hillside Avenue and Leedom Street as well as Elm Avenue between Hillside Avenue and Cheltena Avenue. To perform the final restoration safely, Kehoe will be closing Hillside Avenue from York Road to Walnut Street tomorrow, August 18th.

These road closures will last until approximately 4PMContractors will provide access to homes for residents who live in this area.

Additionally,The Borough has been notified that AQUA’s subcontractor, Giuliani, that due to the potential heavy rain in tomorrow’s weather forecast, the paving of Washington Lane between York Road and Newbold Road has been rescheduled to begin Monday August 21st, beginning at 7:00AM. Residents will not have continuous access to their driveways during the paving operation and will not be able to access their driveway until the paving has cooled for traffic.
