As part of a project to replace natural gas pipelines in State College, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania will be working on Ridge Avenue between N. Atherton Street and Burrowes Road on Saturday, September 23.

Temporary lane closures with flaggers directing traffic are possible between the working hours of 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

Motorists that encounter Columbia Gas work crews on the road can follow these simple tips to ensure their safety and the safety of road crews:

  • When approaching a construction work zone, obey flaggers who may signal you to stop or slow down. Drivers who disobey a flagger may be cited.
  • Pay attention to and obey all signage posted in a construction work zone.
  • Motorists are required by law to use headlights when traveling through a work zone. Remember to turn headlights on when traveling in work zones, even during daylight hours.
  • Reduce your speed and double your following distance. Always travel at or below the posted speed for the work zone.
  • Stay alert and do not drive distracted – do not eat or use cell phones, computer devices, or car audio systems when driving in construction zones.
