Shelby Third Ward Columbia Gas Project Underway

5 Jul , 2022  

By 1812Blockhouse

No pain, no gain is the old adage. In Shelby, the hope is that inconvenience for a short period of time will result in years of minimal maintenance and disruption for local residents.

In particular, that includes residents in Ward Three this fall.

A large scale pipeline replacement project by Columbia Gas, long in the planning, is now underway. As a reminder:

  • Crews will begin with installation of the new mainline and then proceed to service line replacements for individual homes.
  • Columbia Gas will temporarily restore all property and then follow-up with permanent grade restoration as the project nears completion.

The work is a Columbia Gas project, not a city one. It is part of a large initiative throughout the entire service area, where older pipe is being retrofitted and/or replaced with new plastic pipes as part of a regular schedule.

As a further reminder and to promote workplace safety:

  • Stay safe by keeping children and pets away from construction areas.
  • Do not park in marked construction zones.
  • Drive carefully in construction zones.
  • Follow the direction of traffic signs and on-site crew.

For more information, call 216.215.4103.
