COLONIAL HEIGHTS Gas main work could soon cause some disruption along a busy portion of the Boulevard.

Columbia Gas of Virginia will be doing underground utility construction work in Colonial Heights along the Boulevard beginning at Westover Ave. and continuing south to Dupuy Avenue. The work is expected to take approximately two months to complete and be completed in mid-May.

This project is a result of Columbia Gas completing work on a $300,000 investment relocating underground natural gas facilities in advance of the City of Colonial Heights streetscape improvement project.

The project will result in the temporary closure of the outside traffic lane traveling south from Westover Avenue to Dupuy Avenue.

Columbia Gas of Virginia said it will coordinate arrangements with all businesses and property owners during the construction. As part of the pipeline relocation process, it may require the transfer of existing customer service lines to the new natural gas facilities. Businesses will receive information during the construction regarding any work that may need to be completed at your property.

Each property owner is responsible for locating and marking any private underground facilities such as irrigation systems, invisible dog fences and drain fields.

If necessary, individual service lines and meters will be replaced. Please note: natural gas service will be temporarily interrupted while our crews complete this work.

Columbia Gas will need to access your property to complete a safety check and relight your natural gas appliances.

Upon completion of the construction project, Columbia Gas said it will restore the property to its original condition. This can include the yard, sidewalk or other pavement.
