Pa. Turnpike fuel pumps will be offline next week at Sideling Hill plaza

The Sideling Hill Service Plaza along the Pennsylvania Turnpike

Motorists traveling on the Pennsylvania Turnpike through Fulton County next week will not be able to refuel their vehicles at the Sideling Hill Service Plaza.

The Turnpike Commission advised that gas and diesel fuel pumps will be offline there from 8 a.m. Monday through 5 p.m. March 2 for both eastbound and westbound motorists.

“We are replacing the underground components of the plaza’s fuel pumps and will need this five-day period for safe installation and proper testing,” said Turnpike Facilities Director Jack Christensen. “We greatly regret this inconvenience to our customers and are advising motorists to plan accordingly.”

All other plaza services will be available. The fuel pumps are scheduled to resume operation for the weekend of March 3.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
