Upgrades & Maintenance
Natural Gas Distribution System Improvements
The City of Lawrenceville is pleased to announce upcoming natural gas distribution system improvements. Following the award of a U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s Natural Gas Distribution Infrastructure Safety and Modernization Grant (NGDISM Grant), we will replace 21 miles of aging natural gas pipelines with new modernized pipes that will reduce methane emissions and improve the overall safety of the system.
- Construction is expected to begin in Winter 2024 and end in Fall 2026.
- While this is an extended construction period and potential inconvenience for community members in work areas, it is an overall improvement to our natural gas delivery system paid for by a federal grant rather than only customer charges and fees.
What to Expect
All construction is expected to take place off the road in the utility easement; however, nearby construction generally causes potential changes in traffic.
- There may be instances of lane closures and traffic control procedures as new pipes are installed. The City of Lawrenceville will communicate all road and lane closures through our alert system, website, and social media.
Please expect potential traffic delays, and service outages as a result of work done in our community related to the NGDISM Grant project. We ask that you exercise caution around construction areas and follow posted safety warnings.
Below you can find a list of areas where the pipeline replacement is planned to occur and what material will be replaced.
