Columbia Gas Project: Updated Information

THE FOLLOWING CORRESPONDENCE IS FROM COLUMBIA GAS:


 

We’re replacing the natural gas system in your neighborhood

October 10, 2017

Dear Columbia Gas customer,

Thank you for your continued patience as we work to complete our pipeline upgrade project in Marshall Township and Bradford Woods.  We regret any inconvenience this project may have caused, but once complete, it will ensure the continued safe delivery of reliable natural gas to area customers for many years to come.

We wanted to provide an update as we move to the final phase of the pipeline installation and restoration work along Wexford Run, Shenot, Harmony and Wheatland roads. 

In consultation with officials from Marshall Township, Bradford Woods, North Allegheny School District, Northern Regional Police and State Rep. Turzai’s office, Columbia Gas has received approval to use a combination of day, night and weekend work to expedite the completion of this project to minimize disruptions for area residents and businesses.

Mid Ohio, the pipeline installation contractor, will continue pipeline installation work on Wexford Run Road on weekends from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with work expected to be completed Oct. 15, weather permitting.  Mid Ohio also will finish pipeline installation on Harmony Road, working Mondays through Fridays, 7a.m. to 7 p.m., with an anticipated completion date of Nov. 10.

Facchiano, the road restoration contractor, will work Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., as needed to make repairs to Wexford Run Road. Night work, which will include milling and paving, is expected to begin Oct. 18 between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. on Wexford Run Road only, weather dependent, and continue as needed. Wexford Run Road will be closed during those hours. All remaining restoration work on other affected roads is expected to be completed by the end of November.

Help us keep you and our crews safe

Your safety and the safety of our workers is our first priority. During weekday daylight working hours, flaggers will be used to keep traffic moving as efficiently as possible and to avoid disruption to local and school business traffic in the area. Please use extreme caution when traveling through our work zone and slow down and obey flaggers and all posted signs including detours or parking restrictions.  Emergency vehicles and local traffic will be given access to the affected roads during all working hours.

Please contact us if you have questions or concerns about this important project.

Sincerely,

Jack Gill

Columbia Gas Project Manager
