Columbia Gas Detroit Rd & Dellwood Rd
Infrasource, is gearing up to initiate a small-scale pipeline replacement project in the Westlake area. The primary objective of this project is to address existing leakage issues. The work will involve the installation of approximately 60 feet of new pipe, which will serve roughly three properties in the vicinity of Detroit and Dellwood.
In terms of project sequencing, the preconstruction phase has been largely completed. During this stage, residents may have noticed markers and flags appearing in their yards. These markers are essential to pinpoint the locations of underground facilities, and we kindly request that everyone keeps them in place until our work is finalized.
The installation of the new mainline is slated to commence during the week of September 4. Following the successful installation and activation of the mainline, our dedicated crews will proceed with service line replacements for individual homes and businesses. These replacements typically take around 2-4 hours per property and may involve a brief service disconnection. Additionally, indoor meters will be relocated to outdoor locations. Infrasource personnel will reach out to schedule appointments with each property owner for the shutoff, relight, and meter relocation, if necessary.
Regarding restoration efforts, our teams will initially provide temporary restoration to ensure safety and accessibility for all properties. Permanent restoration work will follow as the project nears its completion phase.
In terms of traffic impacts, we advise residents to anticipate some congestion within the work zones. However, rest assured that flaggers will be on-site to facilitate the safe passage of all motorists. Importantly, our crews will not obstruct access to residents' driveways during the course of this project. Your cooperation and patience during this essential pipeline replacement project are greatly appreciated.
