Columbia Gas plans upgrades in Canton Twp.

  • February 4, 2014

Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania said Tuesday it will make a significant investment to upgrade existing facilities in Canton Township beginning this week.

The project is part of a $2.7 million investment the company said it is making in the township this year.

According to a news release, the entire $1.1 million project is expected to be completed by early July and will benefit the entire neighborhood.

The project will involve the replacement of more than 13,400 feet of existing pipe along Arlington Avenue, Beverly Drive, Crescent Drive, Diane Drive, Hewitt Avenue, Hilltop Lane, Jefferson Avenue, Mark Avenue, Midland Drive, Morrison Drive, Norman Avenue, Paul Street, Steel Street, Topview Drive, and Veltri Drive.

Construction will take place Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. with possible Saturday work. Temporary lane closures are possible during working hours.

The construction work will require a temporary interruption of natural gas service for 400 customers while their service is connected to the new gas main.

Columbia said it will make personal contact with customers prior to the service interruption and to schedule service restoration.
