CPV Fairview Construction Update
Equipment Heavy Hauls
CPV Fairview has hired Kiewit Power Constructors to orchestrate 48 super-load heavy hauls from East Conemaugh Borough to the new CPV Fairview Energy Center beginning in mid-May 2018. Please note that the majority of the heavy hauls will take place this summer from late June through early September between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM, excluding weekends and holidays. The heavy hauls have been reviewed, approved and permitted in accordance with the laws and codes of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We thank all local residents in advance for your patience and understanding.
We are committed to proactively keeping the Jackson Township community informed on the progress of the CPV Fairview Energy Center. Overall, we are on track with the construction activities for this new, state-of-the-art facility that will power more than 1 million Pennsylvania homes. Beginning March 12, 2018, we expect those activities to ramp up. At that time, our contractors will begin working smaller staffed night shifts from 7:00 PM to 3:30 AM as needed to keep the project on schedule with the goal of bringing the facility online by 2020. CPV Fairview and our contractors have worked closely with the Jackson Township Supervisors on a plan to minimize impacts to our closest neighbors during the ramp-up.
Water Pipeline Installation
CPV's local water pipeline contractor, Merlo, is in the process of installing water pipeline in the Vinco area on private property adjacent to the CPV Fairview construction site (pipeline shown in light blue below). Due to recent inclement weather, the work is expected to continue until the 3rd week in March. Once complete, Merlo will move to another location near Johnstown for additional installation of pipeline.
Merlo will return to the Vinco area shown on the map below (as identified in red) on July 23rd to complete the remaining pipeline by the end of September. During this time, Adams Avenue and Gillen Lane will be open for local traffic, but may be reduced to one lane at times, in accordance with any approved traffic plan by the Township. Note that a section of Blackburn Road will be closed for a short period of time during that portion of installation and will be accessible only to those immediate local residents and for emergencies.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during construction of the CPV Fairview Energy Center.
