UGI has begun the second phase of its GET Gas program in Tunkhannock Borough.
Last week, Warren Street was blocked off to allow a crew from Linde Corp to begin installing pipeline that will give additional residences and businesses a chance to utilize natural gas.
UGI completed phase 1 of the project earlier this year, which covered Harrison Street and Sunnyside Road, with a gate station north of Shadowbrook Resort.
Customers in phase 1 territory have not received services yet, though UGI has introduced gas into the pipelines. After finishing flaring and ensuring that the lines are ready to go, UGI will begin officially serving Tunkhannock customers.
“We’re excited to start serving people from phase 1 and we hope to get phase 2 completed by the end of next summer so that everyone in the area can take advantage of natural gas,” said UGI Business Development Director for Northern Pennsylvania Don Brominski.
Linde Corp plans to complete as much as phase 2 as possible before there’s frost in the ground, Brominski said. Any work not completed this year will roll over into the spring.
Phase 2 will utilize the same gate station as phase 1, but add pipeline to several streets throughout Tunkhannock, including portions of West Tioga Street as well as West Street, Maple Avenue, Susquehanna Avenue, Elk Street, Elm Street, Putnam Street, Warren Street, Harding Street, Slocum Avenue, Wyoming Avenue, Philadelphia Avenue, Franklin Avenue, Clay Street, Marion Street, Church Street, Pine Street, Stark Street and McCord Street.
