Gas Line Replacement Project underway

Columbia Gas Project

Columbia Gas is conducting a gas line replacement project in Worthington. Work is impacting about 210 residences.

The work area is roughly bounded by Short Street on the north, Olentangy Boulevard on the west, Winter Drive on the south and Oxford Court on the east. A majority of the construction work will be occurring on South Street and Evening Street.


What will this mean for residents?

  • Columbia Gas contractors will work street by street to install new main lines and service lines up to each customer’s home or building.
  • Gas service will not be impacted until it is time for Columbia Gas to connect the customer to the new gas system at their meter. For most customers, gas service will be interrupted for approximately two to four hours. Customers will get advance notice of this service interruption.
  • If the gas meter is currently inside, it will be moved outside.
  • Any surface that has to be disturbed will be repaired by Columbia Gas. This includes sidewalks, driveways, lawns and landscaping.
  • Once this work is complete, customers will have a gas system with state of the art safety features.

The work and clean-up are expected to be completed by winter of 2019.

Columbia Gas of Ohio has invested more than $1.5 billion in communities around the state to replace aging gas lines over the last decade. This is paying off in safety, with leaks reduced by nearly 40 percent.
