From Utility Line Services:
Another biweekly update on our progress in Narberth. Since the last update the crew laying main on Narberth Ave have nearly completed their installation from Haverford Ave to Woodbine with a tentative date set for this Wednesday for the tie in and gas on. From There they will continue laying on Narberth Ave from Woodbine Ave to Montgomery Ave with lateral pieces extending out to the tie in points on Wayne Ave and Price Ave East of Narberth.
The conversion of the gas main on Barrie Rd off of Essex Ave went without a hitch completing our work on Barrie.
The crew that did the conversion has since moved over to the culvert work at Woodside and Wynnewood once they have the pipe through the culvert they will continue installing the main up Wynnewood Rd to the train bridge. Once all the main is installed through the culvert and up to the train bridge we will put the main on gas. Once on gas there will be a single tie in by the dead end of Elmwood on the opposite side of the creek to tie in the leg we laid in 2016.
The crew laying main on Grayling Ave have completed the installation and the main is now active. They have since moved on to another township.
We will be moving a crew in Monday next week to begin retiring some of the old mains where the service crews have transferred all of the services to the new main. The streets we intend to retire are listed below.
Once the mains are retired on these streets this crew will move up to Price Ave to install the main between Narberth Ave and Grayling Ave. This main will not be on gas until the main on Narberth Ave between Woodbine and Montgomery Ave is tied in.
The service crews may begin to reenter Narberth mid to late next week as they wrap up the first stretch of services on Montgomery Ave in Lower Merion. They will move to Grayling Ave between Woodbine and Price first then move to the Essex Ave project working services on the streets listed below.
