Water from a 24 in main break gushes along the 400 Block of East Agnew Avenue in Carrick, on Friday, Sept. 20, 2019.

Pennsylvania American Water will begin repairing a portion of Becks Run Road in Baldwin starting next week, the company said Friday.

The company expects to finish repairs by mid-November.

The work will begin at 7 a.m. Wednesday on a section of the road damaged by the waterline break along East Agnew Avenue.

Work is scheduled Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends as needed, the company said in a statement.

The work will be on an approximately half-mile section of road to Wagner Road, said Pennsylvania American spokeswoman Heather M. DuBose.

The construction work will require one-lane traffic in the construction zone between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

DuBose said the Pittsburgh-based Casper, Colosimo & Son, Inc. will do the work.

Motorists are urged to give themselves extra time and exercise caution when traveling through the work zone.

The company does not expect service disruptions during project.

The company is continuing to work with East Agnew area residents impacted by the water main break, DuBose said.

“Our insurance company and our disaster restoration services contractor continue to work directly with affected residents to assess the damage and determine their respective pre-loss conditions,” she said.

Pennsylvania American Water, is a subsidiary of American Water and is the largest investor-owned water utility in the state.
