Road Construction Updates
Below is a listing of current/upcoming road construction projects that you should be aware of. We will make every effort to pass on all information we are given to keep you up to date.
Columbia Gas Pipeline Project:
Columbia Gas and their contractor Miller Pipeline is getting set to begin a pipeline replacement project in Avon. Crews will be installing approximately 4,400 feet of new plastic pipe serving roughly 40 residences on S.R. 83/Center Road between Detroit and Miller Nature Preserve.
The work is scheduled to begin January 23, 2023. Most of the work will be on the east side of State Route 83 ( Center Road). All of the residents and business in the area have been or will be contacted by Columbia Gas.
Preconstruction work is already underway During this phase, residents may notice markers and flags cropping up in yards. Those are to mark the locations of underground facilities. Ask kindly that everyone keep those in place until our work is complete.
- Once the mainline is in and put into service, crews will follow-up with service line replacements for individual homes. These take about 2-4 hours per property and include a brief service disconnection. Indoor meters will be relocated outside as well. Miller personnel will reach out to schedule an appointment with each property owner for the shutoff, relight and meter relocation (if necessary).
As for restoration, crews will temporarily restore all property to ensure safety and accessibility and then follow-up with the permanent grade restoration as the project nears completion.
As for traffic, please expect some congestion in our work zones, but flaggers will be on-hand to get all motorists through safely. Further, crews will not block residents in their driveways.
We will work with Columbia Gas representatives to provide updates as the project progresses.
