Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Inc. is starting on a gas pipeline upgrade project in Westmoreland County, Pa., that would replace over 4,100 feet of underground pipe.
The project is scheduled to end by early December. The NiSource Inc. utility will be working on pipelines in North Huntingdon along Nehrih Hill Road, Old Spring Road, Lentz Lane, Water Street, Haywood Road, Mary Street, June Street, Annette Drive and Virginia Avenue, according to an Oct. 11 news release.
During construction, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania will need to temporarily interrupt natural gas service and coordinate with customers on service restoration schedules. Customers will be informed before service is shut off. Indoor meters will also be transferred outside at no additional cost to customers.
Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania operates about 7,350 miles of distribution mains and serves about 426,000 customers in 26 counties across Pennsylvania's greater York and Western Pennsylvania service territories.
