Construction Update Bend Replacement Project PH.2

Week of August 19, 2013

 

Cascade Natural Gas continues to replace aging gas lines with new on Bend’s west side.  So far,  crews have installed 215’ of 6” steel gas main line and 214’ of 6” Polyethylene main on NW Galveston/Tumalo Ave. 

 

Today (Monday 8/19), the crew will dig across NW Riverside Blvd. and into the grass median east of NW Riverside.  Access to NW Riverside Blvd. south of NW Tumalo will be closed during the day but will be reopened around 5:00 pm.   NW Riverfront Ave. will be open for local access only.

 Due to the traffic congestion, Cascade Natural Gas is asking people to avoid this area if at all possible.      

 

Cascade Natural Gas advises Bend residents living in the construction zone to keep vehicles out of the work area during the day to allow crews access to the gas lines. 

 

If you’d like more information as to when pipeline crews will be working on your street, visit Cascade Natural Gas on the web at cngc.com, or call 888-522-1130.
