Area road project to result in boil order

WEIRTON – Continuing road work along Pennsylvania Avenue will result in a boil order for part of the city on Wednesday.

Between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Wednesday, crews with James White Construction Co., who are working on the Pennsylvania Avenue widening project for the West Virginia Division of Highways, will tie a new section of 12-inch water distribution line into the existing line along the roadway.

Once work is completed, a boil order will be in effect for all homes and businesses along Pennsylvania Avenue from North 15th Street to South 12th Street. The boil order will be in place for a minimum of 48 hours.

Those in the affected area are asked to use boiled or bottled water for drinking, ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, bathing and food preparation for the duration of the boil order.
