Aqua replacing water main on Gay Street

May 20, 2019

West Chester PA -- Gay Street Aqua construction and repaving is being completed this week on East Gay Street between Matlack and High. It's scheduled to be finished Wednesday afternoon, May 22 (barring weather). 

The Medpark lot at Wells Fargo Bank has an entrance on Walnut Street between Market & Gay streets during active construction times.


Two crews of contractors are working to replace the water main on East Gay Street between Matlack and High Streets. Additionally, the intersection of Walnut and East Gay is closed due to construction.

As a result, East Gay Street is closed to vehicular traffic between Matlack and High streets and there is no thru traffic on Walnut Street between Chestnut and Market Streets.

  • $600,000 capital investment in new infrastructure
  • Increase reliability and minimize future risk of main breaks
  • Existing 8", 6" and 4" cast iron pipe
  • Installed circa 1887, based on available records

A site manager is on-site at all times to address any issues with impacted property/business owners.

Questions can be directed to the on-site manager, Holly, or to:
