Representatives from People’s Gas came to the Polish Hill community meeting on March 4 to talk about the upcoming gas line work on Dobson Street. The work will affect residents on Dobson Street between Hancock Street to Herron Avenue, and residents on Harding Way and Fleetwood Way. The work is supposed to start sometime next week, and People’s Gas will send letters to customers who will be affected.
Here are some points of information that People’s Gas representatives shared at the meeting:
— Work will take place on Dobson, Harding Way, and on Fleetwood Street (to about 100 feet short of Herron Avenue). The project should take 3-4 weeks.
— There will be some disruption of service at the end of the project, when changing over to the main line. People’s will be doing pressure and safety test, which will result in outages lasting 10-15 minutes.
— Outages will be scheduled and the residents who will be affected will be contacted directly by Peoples.
