Dominion Energy Ohio’s has launched a $2.2 million project to replace 12,400 feet of steel piping with corrosion-resistant plastic line in the area surrounding the intersection of Kent Road and Parkwood Drive.
The work is scheduled to be completed in early April.
The pipe being replaced was installed in the 1940s and 1950s. The project is part of the company’s Pipeline Infrastructure Replacement program. The $4 billion, 25-year program will replace more than 5,500 miles Dominion’s 22,000-mile pipeline system.
During the work, the company or its contractors will need to turn off natural gas service to about 120 customers for a short time, generally one to three hours. The company said it will attempt to notify customers 24 to 48 hours prior to the work and may need to do additional work at customers’ homes or businesses.
