Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania to Upgrade Pipeline Near Intersection of Greentree and Carnahan Roads Starting October 26

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania will start a project on Oct. 26 to upgrade approximately 300 feet of underground steel pipe near the intersection of Greentree and Carnahan roads in Green Tree Borough.

Work will take place Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with temporary, single-lane restrictions during working hours.  Weekend work from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. also is possible during the project, which is expected to last through mid-November, weather permitting.  The sidewalk in the construction area also will be closed throughout the duration of the project.

Motorists traveling through the Columbia Gas work zone should follow these tips to ensure their safety and the safety of the construction crews:

  • Expect the unexpected – Normal speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may change, and people may be working on or near the road.
  • Slow down – Speeding is one of the major causes of work zone crashes.
  • Keep your distance – Keep a safe distance between you and the car ahead of you and don’t tailgate.
  • Pay attention to the signs – Observe the posted signs until you see the one that says you’ve left the work zone.
  • Obey road crew flaggers – A flagger has the same authority as a regulatory sign, so you can be cited for disobeying his or her directions.
  • Stay alert and minimize distractions – Dedicate your full attention to the roadway and avoid changing radio stations or using cell phones while driving.
