July 16, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Construction is expected to begin this week on the H2O grant projects beginning with the West Mahoning Street sewer project.

Punxsutawney Borough Engineer Brian Sekula, EADS Group, said work will be done first on West Mahoning because of the paving work needed following construction of storm sewers, which should help with the high water in the area of the Punxy Plaza when a heavy thunderstorm occurs.

Sekula said the Horatio Street sewer project will be second, and South Main Street will be third.
