Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania to Replace Natural Gas Pipelines on Fairfield Road in Fairfield
Wednesday, May 17, 2017
Natural gas customers in Fairfield will continue to have safe, reliable, and efficient natural gas service delivered to homes and businesses thanks to Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania. The Company has begun a project to replace over 3,200 feet of natural gas pipelines on Fairfield Road.
The infrastructure replacement project involves pipelines along sections of Fairfield Road, Main Street, Miller Street, and McGinley Drive. Construction work will take place Monday through Friday between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM with temporary lane closures possible during working hours.
The construction work will require a temporary interruption of natural gas service for individual 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 work 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.
