Work crews from Northern Pipeline Co. will begin installing a new gas main at the intersection of Jonathan Street and Church Street at 7 a.m. Thursday, weather permitting.
The work will involve trenching out into the intersection to connect the new gas main to an existing gas main. Due to the confined space available to perform this work, all four legs of the intersection will be closed to vehicular traffic, according to a prepared release from the City of Hagerstown.
As a result, Church Street will be closed to through traffic between North Prospect and North Potomac streets, and Jonathan Street will be closed to through traffic between Franklin and Bethel streets.
Local traffic will be able to use Church and Jonathan streets up to work zone at the intersection. Through traffic will be forced to detour around the work area using other city streets.
