Gas lines added to work planned in Edgeworth

New natural gas lines and fresh paving could come early next year to some portions of Edgeworth.

Borough leaders already planned to pave roads in 2014, but last month, Columbia Gas officials informed Edgeworth officials of their plans to replace some 7,000 feet of pipe beginning next month, borough Manager Marty McDaniel said.

“This is going to be fairly significant this year,” he said.

Columbia Gas crews will work on Woodland Road, Way Hollow Road, Irwin Drive, West Drive and East Drive, McDaniel said.

“The gas company wants to be in here in January,” he said. “This is moving fast.”

Borough leaders could decide to resurface those roads, in addition to a portion of Chestnut Road, McDaniel said. Way Hollow Road is a state-owned roadway.

Since 2007, Columbia Gas invested more than $400 million to replace more than 2.3 million feet of pipe in Pennsylvania, according to company data. This year, the company planned to spend more than $140 million on pipleline replacement.

Sewickley received about 8,000 feet of new pipe this year, along Walnut Street, Grant Street, Little Street, Fredrick Street, Henry Avenue, Thorn Street, Emery Street, Bank Street, Ferry Street and Elwick Street.
