Becks Run Road now open
Becks Run Road, between Carson Street and Wagner Avenue, is now open. Rain and cold throughout prevented crews from completing final repaving and line painting of the roadway in time for the weekend.
Traffic had been restricted to one southbound lane for the past several months to accommodate the installation of a new 42-inch water main as part of Pennsylvania American Water's $101 million Becks Run Pumping Station and Hays Mine improvement project.
The paving restoration followed the installation of approximately 2,900 feet main along Becks Run as part of Pennsylvania American Water's improvement projects, to improve the water treatment processes and ensure that the company's drinking water continues to comply with all U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards.
