Please be advised that PECO will be preforming gas main replacement on East Richardson Ave. The work will be done in sections at a time. The complete project is expected to last up to 8 weeks. Residents will have access to the roadway. You may find additional traffic around the area or periodic road closures. If you have any other questions about this work please call 610-832-6420 or email

Scope of Work

  • Work is expected to begin week of April 26, 2021, on E Richardson Avenue from Bellevue Ave to Cherry Street, from 7:00am. – 5:00p.m.
  • This project work may occur in roadways as well as on sidewalks and potentially on your property.
  • We anticipate the natural gas main and service line installation portion of this project will be completed in 8 weeks.

Most of the work will be performed outdoors, but to safely connect your property to the new natural gas main, PECO or a PECO contractor will need to turn off natural gas service and then enter your property to relight your appliances after the connection. We will need access to the natural gas appliances or equipment in your home so we can perform this work, and later that day to restore service and relight any appliances. At this time, we will also be relocating any indoor natural gas meters to the exterior of customer homes. This relocation work is necessary for the safety of our employees, contractors, customers, and communities and is mandatory per the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. 

This work will be performed by [Danella Construction], a qualified PECO contractor.  If you have any questions, please contact David Spivey of Danella Construction at or 484-576-6069.

Any areas impacted on your property will be repaired, the streets will be repaved, and all areas will be restored to their original condition. You may be asked to move your vehicle to provide access to the work area.

We will work to minimize the impact this project will have on you and your neighbors and thank you for your cooperation. If you have any other questions about this work please call 610-832-6420 or email
