GIRARD, Ohio (WYTV) – Nearly 9,000 feet of new, natural gas pipeline is going to be installed in Girard.

Dominion Energy Ohio announced Thursday it is going to invest $1.9 million into the project to replace pipes installed in the 1940s and 1950s with new, corrosion-resistant plastic and coated steel natural gas lines.

There will be two separate projects within the city.

Construction is scheduled to begin January 29 at the intersection of Maple Avenue and St. Clair Street and will conclude on or around February 19, weather permitting.

The second project is scheduled to begin February 20 on South State Street and is expected to conclude in May.

Once the work is complete, restoration will begin as soon as the weather permits, including sidewalks, driveways and approaches. Typical yard restoration is limited to grading and seeding.

There will be informational signs in the area where work is being performed.
