A multi-million dollar infrastructure project by Dominion East Ohio is underway on the city’s northwest side to replace aging, underground natural gas lines.
The $2.65 million effort, which started in mid-March and is slated to continue through early August, will effect multiple neighborhood streets, alleyways and residences in the area of Lincoln Way NW and 25th Street NW, according to Neil Durbin, a spokesman for Dominion.
Overall, approximately 14,000 feet of pipe will be switched out.
“The project we’re undertaking is to ensure the safety and reliability of our service for years to come,” said Durbin, noting that the corrosion-resistant plastic pipe being installed replaces bare-metal lines.
“There will be a longer life span — decades more — with the pipes we’re putting in,” he added.Click here to continue reading.
