As a part of ATCO’s Urban Pipeline Replacement Program, ATCO will be removing approximately 8.3 km of high-pressure natural gas pipeline from service. The line will be converted to reduced distribution pressures going forward. The line runs along 68 Street N.E., from 16 Avenue N.E. to 96 Avenue N.E. (spanning Wards 3 and 5). To support this work, several connections to the existing distribution system will be made within Ward 5:
Work Area #1: A connection to the existing distribution system near the corner of 68 Street N.E. and 16 Avenue N.E.
Work Area #2: A connection to the existing distribution system along Templeby Road N.E.
ATCO has been, and will continue to, work with property owners who reside near these work areas. The estimated start date is May 1, weather permitting, and will be completed by ATCO construction crews. A few key details regarding this project include:
ATCO will distribute postcards
to residences near the worksites
Potential impacts include construction noise during regular work hours, road closures along Templeby Road, pathway detours, and reduced on-street parking.
Every effort will be made to ensure access to driveways and alleys. Where this cannot be maintained, notice will be given to residents in advance.
There will be no natural gas service interruptions for residents.
The estimated completion date is mid-June 2017, weather permitting.
