Bell Ave. Columbia Gas line work
Effective early currently, 04.24.2024:

Infrasource is set to begin a pipeline replacement project in Elyria. Crews are installing approximately 2,300 feet of new pipe serving roughly 70 properties on Bell Avenue
between Clemens Ave. and Lake Ave. This project will remedy existing leakage by retiring old bare steel and cast-iron pipe.

Preconstruction work is in progress. During this phase, residents may notice markers and flags appearing in yards.
Those are to mark the locations of underground facilities. Ask kindly that everyone keep in place until our work is complete.
Installation of the new mainline should then begin in early May.
Once the mainline is in and put into service, crews will follow-up with service line replacements and/or tie-overs
for individual homes. These take about 2-4 hours per property and include a brief service disconnection. Indoor meters will be relocated outside as well. Infrasource personnel will reach out to schedule an appointment with each property owner for the shutoff,
relight and meter relocation (if necessary).
As for restoration, crews will temporarily restore all property to ensure safety and accessibility and then follow-up with the permanent
grade restoration as the project nears completion.
As for traffic, please expect some congestion in our work zones, but flaggers will be on-hand to get all motorists through safely. Further, crews will not block residents in
their driveways.
