Pennsylvania American Water on Thursday announced it will start replacing a section of water main in Lemoyne next week.
The company said it is working to improve water service reliability and fire protection for residents and businesses, and it will upgrade aging pipe dating back to the early 1900s.
The $1.5 million project will begin Monday with crews installing nearly 4,350 feet of new 8-inch, 6-inch and 4-inch ductile iron water main on Hummel Avenue between South Third Street and South Ninth Street, as well as on South Third Street from Bosler Avenue to the Interstate 83 bridge, according to the company.
Construction is scheduled for completion in December, with final paving occurring in spring 2020, weather permitting.

Crews will work nightly from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Friday on South Third Street, and from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday on Hummel Avenue.
Pennsylvania American Water also said that customers may experience temporary water service interruptions, discolored water and/or lower than normal water pressure during construction.
