O&R: More Spring Valley Gas Main Work to Begin 9/25 On Summit Ave.

Orange & Rockland (O&R) is scheduled to begin a natural gas main replacement project on or about Sept. 25 on Summit Ave. in Spring Valley.

The project is expected to take about three weeks to complete and represents an O&R investment of approximately $324,000 in the neighborhood’s natural gas infrastructure to strengthen and improve the reliability of the natural gas system in the village.

 

The project requires trenching approximately 1,750 feet along Summit Ave.

 

O&R’s contractor, Colonnelli Bros., Inc., will install new high density plastic gas main to replace the aging plastic and steel gas main currently serving the neighborhood. The project also will replace individual gas service pipes that connect 12 separate buildings in the project area to the main.

 

Installing those individual service pipes will require interrupting gas service to those customers as their services are connected to the new main. The customers will be notified in advance for individual gas outages as needed.

 

Orange & Rockland has obtained the required road opening permits.

 

The contractor crews will be performing the work between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Traffic control flaggers, cones and signs will be fully deployed for workplace safety.
