Wondering when utility crews will be tearing up your gas line?




A new interactive map now shows when utility crews will be tearing up your sidewalk and putting it back together.

Peoples Natural Gas, which is in the midst of a pipeline replacement project in Pittsburgh and across its territory in southwestern Pennsylvania, has launched a website that allows residents to track the company’s construction activity planned for the upcoming two weeks.

The North Shore-based utility is replacing all bare steel distribution mains and customer service lines as part of a 20-year infrastructure plan that began three years ago.

Pittsburgh is seeing a lot of the work in the beginning years of the project..

The website also answers questions about what customers can expect during repairs — whether their gas will be shut off, when they’ll be notified, and when to expect “no parking” signs to show up on their blocks.

Pennsylvania American Water, which serves 2.3 million water and wastewater customers in the state, launched its own interactive map on Monday. The tool breaks down the company’s planned 2017 pipeline projects by location, cost and length of pipe.
