Columbia Gas to begin pipeline upgrade project in Beaver Borough, PA.
Canonsburg, PA. – Natural gas customers in Beaver Borough, Beaver County, will soon benefit from a Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania gas pipeline replacement project starting this month that will ensure the delivery of safe, reliable, and efficient natural gas to them for years to come.
Columbia Gas is replacing more than 17,000 feet of underground pipe impacting customers along portions of Bank Street, Buffalo Street, College Avenue, Commerce Street, Corporation Street, Dravo Avenue, Insurance Street, Market Street, Navigation Street, River Road, Second Street and Wayne Street. Work is expected to last through late 2021 and will take place Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Motorists can expect lane restrictions during working hours, and Saturday work also is possible.
The construction work will require a temporary interruption of natural gas service for affected 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, and other work on existing outside meters, 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.
