Utility Construction

Columbia Gas' contractor Infrasource is set to begin a small replacement project  starting the week of May 1, 2023.  Crews will be installing approximately 1,350 feet of new plastic pipe, serving 12 residences on Detroit Road between Bassett Rd and Settler's Reserve Way. This project is necessary to remedy existing leakage.  When traveling in this area expect some congestion and delays in our work zones. Flaggers will be on-hand to get all motorists through safely, but area should be avoided when able. 

Area Homeowners: Preconstruction work is currently underway. During this phase, residents may notice markers and flags cropping up in yards. These are to mark the locations of underground utilities. Ask kindly that everyone keep all markers in place until the work is finished. Installation of the new mainline will begin the week of     May 1, 2023. Once the mainline is installed and put into service, crews will follow-up with service line replacements for individual homes. These take about 2-4 hours per property and include a brief service disconnection  (generally an hour or two). Indoor meters will be relocated outside as well. Infrasource personnel will reach out to schedule an appointment for the disconnect, relight, and meter relocation (if necessary) with each property owner.  

As for restoration, crews will temporarily restore all property to ensure safety and accessibility and then follow-up with permanent restoration as the project nears completion. Thanks for your patience and understanding.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to Columbia Gas of Ohio, Public Affairs Manager Ben Cutler MBA,  with questions, concerns, or any other special circumstances that they should be aware of.
