PARKES­BURG >> Penn­syl­va­nia Amer­i­can Wa­ter is start­ing wa­ter and sewer line im­prove­ments along Main Street that will cause traf­fic re­stric­tions dur­ing that project.

Penn­syl­va­nia Amer­i­can Wa­ter an­nounced the start of con­struc­tion to in­stall new wa­ter and sewer mains in Parkes­burg to im­prove ser­vice re­li­a­bil­ity and in­crease wa­ter flows for fire­fight­ing. The ap­prox­i­mately $850,000 project will re­place nearly 1,400 feet of ag­ing wa­ter and sewer pipe, in­clud­ing out­dated wa­ter main that dates back to the 1920s.

Crews this week will in­stall the new pipe along Main Street be­tween Cul­vert and West Bridge streets. Weather per­mit­ting, the com­pany ex­pects to com­plete the wa­ter and sewer line in­stal­la­tion and ser­vice con­nec­tions by the end of this year, with fi­nal paving restora­tion sched­uled for early spring 2017.

Con­struc­tion is sched­uled for week­days be­tween 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Traf­fic re­stric­tions will be in place dur­ing con­struc­tion hours, and mo­torists are urged to give them­selves ex­tra time while trav­el­ing through the area or find al­ter­nate routes.

Dur­ing con­struc­tion, cus­tomers might ex­pe­ri­ence tem­po­rary wa­ter ser­vice in­ter­rup­tions, dis­col­ored wa­ter and/or lower than nor­mal wa­ter pres­sure.
