Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, Inc. has launched a $1.4 million pipeline improvement project in Overbook.
The company will replace approximately 4,200 feet of existing steel pipe with state-of-the-art plastic pipe within the Overbook community. The entire project is expected to be completed by September 30, and will involve approximately 228 customers.
The pipeline improvement project will include Fairland Street, Lucina Avenue, Queenston Street, Yale Drive, Sinton Avenue, Ariston Avenue, Overbrook Boulevard, Spokane Avenue, Santron Avenue, Almont Street and Wayside Street.
"This summer's work builds off of last year's successful project and will provide a starting point for next year's third phase," said Columbia Gas Engineering Leader Dominic Tarella.
The construction work will require a temporary interruption of natural gas service for individual customers while their service is connected to the new gas main. Columbia Gas will make personal contact with customers prior to shutting off service and to schedule service restoration.
All Columbia Gas employees and contractors carry identification cards bearing their name, photograph and identification number.
