Gas Line Replacement Projects begin in late July and August

Columbia Gas Project

Columbia Gas is replacing gas lines in two Worthington neighborhoods beginning in late July and August. The work will take place in Old Worthington south of SR-161 and in the Medick/Tucker neighborhood. The Medick/Tucker work is expected to start the week of July 25th and the Old Worthington work is expected to start the week of August 15th. All work is expected to last several months and is weather dependent. Those directly impacted have received communications from Columbia Gas with details of the project and more information about what to expect. See the information packets and project maps for each area below.  

What will this mean for impacted residents?

  • Columbia Gas contractors will work street by street to install new main lines in the road right-of-way followed by new service lines up to each individual home or business.
  • Gas service will not be impacted until it is time to connect each property to the new gas system. For most customers, 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.  

Residents can contact Luka Papalko, external affairs specialist for Columbia Gas of Ohio, with questions or concerns at 614-420-1376 or lpapalko@nisource.com.
