Gas has officially kicked off a project that will upgrade the natural gas
pipeline in northwest Ohio.
pipeline will run underneath the Maumee River, from Maumee to Perrysburg. The
project has been in the planning stages for more than five years. The pipeline
will transport natural gas across the river to homes and businesses in Maumee,
Perrysburg and parts of south Toledo.
Road in Perrysburg is partially closed while crews work to upgrade the existing
12-inch bare steel pipeline with the new 20-inch coated steel line.
to make sure we can provide the natural gas to people when they need it, both
on the Perrysburg side (of the river) as well as the Maumee side," said Chris
Kozak, a Columbia Gas representative. "This also provides a great safety net if
we have another extreme weather condition like we had this past winter."
pipeline is 5,300 feet total, with 2,000 feet running beneath the Maumee River.
Due to the scope of the project, Kozak says this is a once-in-a-generation
been dealing with large-scale pipe, which we don't normally replace and
upgrade," he said. "It's been five years in the making to get to this point,
now the hard part starts."
will also be on site during the project because of the area's historical
to make sure that anything we come across, be it cannonballs, arrowheads,
muskets or whatever – we want to properly excavate that," Kozak said.
residents may see crews on or near their property, but Kozak says the project
shouldn't affect their gas supply. The project won't interfere with boaters and
fishers on the river, either.
costs a total of $7.5 million and is expected to be complete by October.
