If you’ve walked around Bella Vista lately, you’ve likely seen some closed-off streets, piles of sand and construction equipment around.
The construction work is part of a major upgrade project for Philadelphia Gas Works that is causing headaches for some residents.
More from Fox29:
Philadelphia Gas Works tells Fox 29 the pipe installation project is behind schedule. Workers experienced several collapses after they started digging that prompted the Streets Department to be called in to help.
The original completion date for this project was set for mid-May, but the date has now been pushed back to June.
How is this affecting residents?
Residents say the problems range from lack of parking, to curbs closed to dirt and sand getting into houses. For elementary school students like Drew Levin who lives in the construction zone noise is the biggest problem.
