Bon Air gas lines to get upgrade
July 18, 2017
Natural gas customers in Bon Air will soon see Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania replace in their neighborhood.
Starting in mid-July, Columbia Gas will replace more than 4,400 feet of underground pipe, affecting customers along Bon Air Avenue, Calle Avenue, Camfield Street, Caperton Street, Conniston Avenue, Drycove Street, Fordyce Street, Grosser Street, Institute Street and Roseton Avenue. Work is expected to last through late fall, weather permitting, and will take place Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with temporary lane restrictions during working hours.
The construction work will require a temporary interruption of natural gas service for individual customers while their service is transferred to the new pipe. Columbia Gas will personally contact these customers prior to shutting off service and to schedule service restoration. Customers with indoor meters also will have their meters relocated to the outside of the premises. This work will be completed at no additional cost to customers.
All company and contract employees carry photo ID badges identifying them as Columbia Gas employees or contractors. Customers are encouraged to ask for ID before allowing anyone into their home, or they can call 1-888-460-4332 for Columbia Gas employee verification.
Motorists traveling through Columbia Gas work zones should exercise caution and be prepared for slowed or temporarily stopped traffic during working hours. Drivers should keep a safe distance between vehicles, reduce speed in work zones, and obey flaggers and all posted signs including detours and parking restrictions.
