Gas line work scheduled for Mount


February 27, 2018

Natural gas customers in Mt. Washington will soon benefit from two upcoming Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania gas pipeline replacement projects that will ensure the delivery of safe, reliable and efficient natural gas to them for years to come.

The project is scheduled to begin in late February. Crews will replace approximately 3,120 feet of underground pipe on Boggs Avenue, Minsinger Street, Southern Avenue and Jeanette Street. Work will take place Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m.-5 p.m., and last through early fall, weather permitting.

There may be temporary lane restrictions during working hours only.

The construction work may 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 will also have their meters relocated to the outside of the premises. This work will be completed at no additional cost to the customer.

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. Motorists should keep a safe distance between vehicles, reduce speed in work zones, and obey flaggers and all posted signs, including detours and parking restrictions.
