Gas company to replace more aging pipes

TERRE HAUTE — Contract crews working for Vectren Energy Delivery have begun replacing gas mains and service lines in Terre Haute as part of the company’s pipeline replacement program, a multi-year program to replace about 1,300 miles of bare steel and cast iron pipeline infrastructure throughout Indiana.

In Terre Haute, about $2.7 million will go to replacing six miles of gas main and more than 370 service lines in 2014. More than 17 miles have been replaced in the city since 2008. Vectren intends to replace a total of more than 73 miles in Terre Haute over the next several years.

The following streets will be affected during current projects: Third, Fourth and Sixth avenues; and Sixth, 61⁄2, 15th, 16th 17th, 18th, 19th, Oak, Poplar and Wilson Streets. To view a map the 2014 construction areas, visit replacement.

Prior to service replacement, a Vectren representative will contact customers to provide an overview of the required work.
