Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Inc, will make an investment to upgrade facilities when more than 11,000 feet of existing pipe will be replaced with plastic pipe during a $1.6 million project.

Pipe will be replaced between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on work days on Old Washington Road, Southern Highlands Road, Country Club Drive, Fairway Circle, Pleasant View Circle, Marwood Drive, Cremona Drive, Amesbury Drive and Wiltshire Drive.

There will be temporary lane closures during work hours only. There will be a detour impacting Southern Highlands, which will be marked.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of November.

The project will require a temporary interruption of natural gas service for individual customers while their service is connected to the new gas main. Columbia will make personal contact with customers prior to shutting off service and to schedule service restoration. All employee and contractors carry cards with names, photographs and identification number.
