Columbia Gas Project

Columbia Gas is upgrading gas lines in the Old Worthington area north of SR-161. Work is expected to continue through fall 2021.

All roads will be restored when the project is complete.

The work area includes:

  • High Street between SR-161 and North Street
  • North Street between Oxford Street and Hartford Street
  • a portion of Hartford Street south of North Street
  • East Stafford Avenue between Oxford Street and High Street
  • Oxford Street between SR-161 and North Street

What will this mean for impacted residents?

  • Columbia Gas contractor, Northern Pipeline, will install new main lines first and then service lines up to each home or building.
  • Gas service will not be impacted until it is time to connect each property to the new gas system at their meter. For most impacted residents, gas service will be interrupted for approximately two to four hours. Residents will get advance notice of this service interruption.
  • Any surface that has to be disturbed will be repaired. This includes sidewalks, driveways, lawns and landscaping. 
  • In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Columbia Gas is taking proactive steps to keep customers, employees, and contractor partners safe. If they need to enter your home or business to complete essential work, all employees and contractors are following these recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to keep themselves and our customers safe:
    •  Assess their health daily.
    • Wear a face covering in accordance with state orders.
    • Maintain at least six feet of social distance during their work.
    • Use additional protective gear when needed.
    •  Clean work surfaces.
