Top Stories

SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A travel advisory has been issued for drivers in part of Scranton. UGI is beginning natural gas main work on Monday to replace the gas main.

The project will take place on North Main Avenue from Jackson Street to West Linden Street in the city.

UGI says crews will replace about 2,300 feet of main to renew gas service to about 45 homes and businesses. They say the gas main is from the 1930s, so the replacement is overdue.

Construction work will take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The work is expected to be done by mid-June.
