Columbia Gas Construction to Start Soon Downtown

Prepare for more gas line work on arterial streets in Chillicothe. Columbia Gas gave a presentation to Chillicothe Council Monday night, and Kevin Coleman was there.

Raquel Colon, Public Affairs Specialist for Columbia Gas, says crews will appear in the Main and Paint Street areas soon, to stay ahead of repaving. She says crews should move in within one to two weeks, and will be busy into spring.

Work will be in Main Street between High and Mulberry, Paint Street from the courthouse to 8th Street, and up to a block east and west on side streets.

The High Street work last year was only the first of nine areas in central Chillicothe that Colon says should be finished in about a decade. She says this new program to replace all low-pressure and pre-1955 gas lines has reduced gas leaks by 50%.

An online public meeting on this project will be 5:30 Wednesday. Find details and a map below.
