Construction will take place between the hours of 7 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday. Traffic will be detoured during construction activities on East Hancock Street between Church Rd. and the Borough Line.
The contractor has an approved COVID-19 safety plan in place and will be practicing all required mitigation techniques. Residents are asked to contact the Borough with any questions and avoid interactions with the contractor that might compromise their safety protocols.
Due to the COVID-19 protocols, door hangers may not be distributed to properties scheduled for new sewer lateral connections. Signs will be posted along the areas planned for utility connections each day. Please be aware that during the time the workers are located in front of a property they will be working to connect the new sewer laterals and plan accordingly.
