Columbia Gas to host meeting on Sewickley upgrade
Columbia Gas will hold a public meeting Wednesday as the company plans a $1.6 million upgrade to existing infrastructure in Sewickley, a company spokeswoman said.
The public meeting will discuss project details including affected streets, project communication, temporary road closures, property restoration, service line replacements and meter relocation, spokeswoman Sarah Perry said.
The company will replace about 8,000 feet of steel pipe with a plastic pipe, Perry said.
The area of pipe replacement includes: Walnut Street, Grant Street, Little Street, Fredrick Street, Henry Avenue, Thorn Street, Emery Street, Bank Street, Ferry Street and Elwick Street.
Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of Columbia Gas construction personnel, she said.
The project is expected to be completed by November.
Since 2007, Columbia Gas invested more than $400 million to replace more than 2.3 million feet of pipe in Pennsylvania. This year, the company plans to spend more than $140 million in pipleline replacement.
The meeting is planned for 5:30 p.m. at the Sewickley Borough building, 601 Thorn St.
