Franke Road Replacement Project

Columbia Gas is getting set to begin a pipeline replacement project in Middleburg Heights. Crews will be installing approximately 4,300 feet of new plastic pipe serving 92 residences on Franke, Stroud, and a section of Middlebrook.

Please see the project map and flyer attached opens in a new windowhere.

Be aware:

  • Preconstruction camera work is already underway during this phase, residents may notice markers and flags cropping up in yards. Those are to mark the locations of underground facilities. Columbia Gas will need everyone to keep those in place until work is complete.
  • Installation of the new mainline should then begin in early October.
  • Once the mainline is in and put into service, Columbia Gas will follow-up with service line replacements 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. Crews will reach-out to schedule an appointment with each property owner for the shutoff, relight and meter relocation (if necessary).

Columbia Gas will temporarily restore all property to ensure safety and accessibility and then follow-up with the permanent grade restoration as the project nears completion.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. Please contact Columbia Gas directly with questions, concerns, or any other special circumstances they should be aware of.
