Columbia Gas of Ohio will upgrade approximately 20,000 feet of natural gas main line in Toledo’s Hamilton Street area.
The $1.5 million upgrade will begin on June 27 and is scheduled to finish next fall. The project plans to upgrade the existing steel pipe with plastic pipe and will temporarily stop natural gas service for those in the area.
Those impacted will included both residential and commercial customers near Brown, Nebraska and Hawley avenues as well as Campbell Street. Customers whose service could be stopped will be contacted before the work begins.
Columbia has a $2 billion plan to upgrade its pipeline system over the next 25 years. Serving approximately 1.4 million customers in 61 Ohio counties, it is the largest natural gas utility in the state.
