At PECO, we are committed to providing safe and reliable energy for our customers and the communities we serve. As part of our work, we will be upgrading our natural gas equipment by installing a new natural gas main to enhance service reliability in your neighborhood.
Work requiring a 24 hour closure is expected to begin Monday, July 25th, 2022 and is scheduled to take approximately 30 days. The work will be performed by Utility Line Services, a qualified PECO contractor. To ensure the safety of our crews and the community, construction will require Butler Pike to be closed and blocked off completely between 5160 and 5168 Butler Pike. Detours will be clearly marked.
