UGI Utilities Inc. Tuesday announced it has begun work on a pipeline construction project involving the installation of new 12-inch steel pipeline in the Carlisle area.
UGI plans to install four miles of the protected steel pipeline in the project zone that includes York Road, Forge Road, Westminster Drive and Petersburg Road.
The work is expected to be completed by fall.
UGI said the project will increase the supply of natural gas for customers in and around Carlisle Borough, and is designed to accommodate continued growth in the area.

The construction associated with this project will occur during various times of the day and night, depending on the phase of the work, UGI said. While construction is in progress, residents and motorists are asked to follow directions provided by posted signs or signaled by flaggers in the construction zone, according to UGI.
Following the conclusion of the project, UGI said it will restore pavement, sidewalks and affected grass areas as soon as weather and the construction schedule permit.
UGI asks those who have concerns about the final phase of the project to call after the restoration is completed.
“UGI recognizes Carlisle residents living in the project area will be inconvenienced during this project,” said Robert P. Krieger, vice president of operations. “We will work to complete construction in a timely manner. This project is part of UGI’s continuing commitment to provide safe and reliable natural gas service to our customers and our communities. We appreciate the community’s patience and understanding as we make this long-term system improvement. We also thank municipal officials for their cooperation and assistance in the planning and execution of this project.”
