If you were wondering what's the deal with all the road work in Stroudsburg its that UGI officials have been replacing the gas lines in the town for the last few months. According to Stroudsburg road officials the focus now is getting the streets repatched regardless of whether the pipes are completed in order to beat the weekend storm. "They have the steel plates on the road and they just need to have those removed and filled in by the time the snow arrives so that we can plow and maintain the roads to be open for public safety vehicles and then after the storm and everything is cleared they can dig it back open and continue on with their work", says Public Works Director of the Borough of Stroudsburg Brian Bond. Road officials say the deadline to repatch the streets before the storm is mid Friday.
