Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania to Invest $1.4 Million on Baltimore Street in Hanover to Replace Natural Gas Pipelines

Friday, January 20, 2017

Natural gas customers in Hanover will continue to have safe, reliable, and efficient natural gas service delivered to homes and businesses thanks to Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, Inc. The Company has begun a project to invest approximately $1.4 million to replace 7,000 feet of natural gas pipelines on Baltimore Street.

The infrastructure replacement project involves pipelines primarily along Baltimore Street in Hanover from Frederick Street to Granger Street with additional work on surrounding roads. Construction work will take place Monday through Friday between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Temporary lane closures are possible during working hours.

The construction work will require a temporary interruption of natural gas service for individual customers while their service is transferred to the new pipe. Columbia Gas will make personal contact with customers prior to shutting off service and to schedule service restoration. Customers will have their service lines replaced if needed. This work will be done at no additional cost to the customer.  

All company and contract employees carry photo ID badges identifying them as Columbia Gas employees or contractors. Customers are encouraged to ask for ID before allowing anyone into their home or they can call 1-888-460-4332 for Columbia Gas employee verification.

From 2007 – 2016, Columbia Gas invested nearly $1.35 billion in the modernization and expansion of its distribution system in Pennsylvania. Of that amount, approximately $1 billion was dedicated to replacing 826 miles of priority pipe. In 2017, Columbia Gas will invest approximately $260 million in Pennsylvania, with more than $200 million being invested to upgrade aging underground infrastructure.
