Nov. 29–Mid-Ohio Pipeline Services has 10 or fewer gas services to tie into the Norwalk system.
Working for Columbia Gas of Ohio, the Lexington, Ohio-based Mid-Ohio Pipeline crews are replacing aged and deteriorating gas lines. The work area covers about 30 city blocks from Milan Avenue to State Street and from Main to League streets.
“The project engineer told me (Tuesday) they have a handful (of services) left and then they will be dedicated to restoration,” Norwalk Public Works Director Josh Snyder said.
That work includes replacing curbs, sidewalks and making various road repairs.
“They are doing a bit of restoration now and they have at least a crew to do the tie-in services,” Snyder said.
Mid-Ohio Pipeline crews started working on the gas lines in early September. As of late October, there were 105 services left to do and as of Nov. 9, that number was down to 75.
The work has destroyed numerous sidewalks, which have been filled in with dirt and other material. The project has caused roads and sidewalks to be closed temporarily.
No estimated end date has been determined.
