Work starts on $1M gas pipe project in Jacobus
More than 7,000 feet of gas pipe in the Jacobus area will be replaced in coming weeks as part of a Columbia Gas project costing just under $1 million, according to a news release from the company.
Starting Monday, the company began work along Valley Road between Club Farm Road and Main Street; the project will also encompass parts of nearby Pleasant Avenue and Smith and Maple streets, according to the release.
Work will take place every weekday, weather permitting, between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The work will involve temporary interruptions of service for people in the area.
The project, which will cost about $980,000, will involve replacing service lines and indoor meters, which will be moved to the outside of buildings there, the release states. This won't cost the customers any additional money.
