Sewer upgrades begin in Parkesburg

Pennsylvania American Water today announced the start of construction of more sewer line improvements in Parkesburg Borough to improve service reliability and prevent sewer blockages. The estimated cost of the project is $390,000.

Starting this week, the company will install approximately 1,400 feet of new sewer pipe along 6th Avenue between Limestone Road and East and West Bridge Streets. Crews will work weekdays between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Traffic restrictions will be in place during construction hours, and motorists are urged to give themselves extra time when traveling through the area. Weather permitting, construction is expected to take two months to complete the sewer main installation, with final paving restoration scheduled for spring 2018.

The project follows another sewer line replacement project that began in November in Parkesburg along Limestone Road.
