1/22/19 UPDATE: This project is now underway, and will continue throughout the next few months.
Columbia Gas will be conducting a main replacement program in the 19th-22nd blocks of Magnolia Avenue in Buena Vista. The existing lines are old and leaks are no longer able to be repaired. Due to existing water, sewer, gas and data there is no additional room in the alley, and therefore this infrastructure improvement will be taking place on Magnolia Avenue, Sycamore Avenue, and portions of the cross streets.
The project is currently underway, and is anticipated to take several months to complete. Columbia Gas contractors will be repairing and repaving disturbed portions of the street and sidewalk.
A public meeting was held on September 10 where Columbia Gas representatives were available to discuss this infrastructure improvement process and answered questions. For a map of properties served by the new gas mains, click the following link: Gas Project Fall 2018 map.
If you have any additional questions, please contact Columbia Gas representative Tony Shafer at (540) 292-6236. Rachel Moore, Director of Economic Development & Tourism will serve as the City of Buena Vista contact and may be reached at (540) 261-8616.
