What to expect: 5 Steps Service Interruptions and Re-Lighting Appliances: If you are a PGW customer, there will be a temporary interruption in your service on the day your home or business is connected to the newly installed gas main. A PGW contractor will leave a notice on your door stating the anticipated date of service interruption at your home or business. It is not necessary for you to be at home during the day while this work is being done from the street to the outside of the building. However, PGW and its contractors will need access to your home or business once the work is completed to re-light the pilot lights on all of your gas appliances and check that your system is safely operating. The re-light and safety check will be scheduled directly with you. We appreciate your cooperation as we work every day to improve the safety and reliability of natural gas service delivery in Philadelphia.

"Voted the best urban trail by USA Today in 2015, the SRT is a 130-mile multiuse path that begins all the way out in Schuylkill County and will now stretch as far as southwest Philly thanks to a U.S. Department of Transportation grant. Bridging the gap known as the Christian to Crescent Connection, the completion project will connect Center City to the trail’s existing Grays Ferry Crescent section, near Bartram’s Garden, by utilizing an elevated track and a cable-stayed bridge spanning the river and a few active docks. ... “Investing in the Schuylkill River Trail expansion isn’t just about enhancing another one of the City of Philadelphia’s many tourist attractions – this is an investment in the economy, health and growth of the city,” Sen. Casey said in a release. “Providing a safe and sustainable way for residents to commute and enjoy the city not only makes it attractive for newcomers but also for businesses.” "

    Schuylkill River Trail Receives $12M in Federal Funding for Completion
    Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey jointly announced a U.S. Department of Transportation grant that will help bridge the final gap in the trail. After years of lobbying in D.C., Pennsylvania senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey announced on Tuesday that they have secured $12 million in federal funding to help pay for the completion of the Schuylkill River Trail in Philadelphia.
