The 2020 Northeast Metro Natural Gas Project construction activities have been successfully completed and the new natural gas lines installed for this project are safely serving our customers. Crews have completed installing the project’s natural gas lines, completed tie-ins to existing natural gas facilities and completed the majority of restoration of previous works areas. Minor restoration activities, including soft-surface restoration, will occur in spring 2021. These activities will occur along the Phase 2 project area weather permitting.

We thank the community for their patience during this vital natural gas project. The completion of this year’s portion of the project allows us to fulfill our commitment to system revitalization and allows us to continue to provide the safe, reliable natural gas service our current and future customers expect.
