JACKSON — Columbia Gas of Ohio has started a gas line replacement project in Jackson. Work began in late April, affecting about 200 residents and businesses.
The work area, according to Columbia Gas, is roughly bounded by Cross Street on the north, Payne Street on the west, Greenmeadow Court on the south and High Street on the east.
A news release from Columbia Gas outlined the project’s effects on local 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 2 to 4 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 fall 2019.
