What is CenterPoint Energy doing?

As a system update project, crews from CenterPoint Energy are installing approximately 15,106 feet of natural gas distribution main along E. 70th Street, E. 78th Street, Fairfield Avenue and Southern Avenue. The work is also including the replacement of 299 gas service lines.​

What do "gas service lines" mean to residents?

A gas service line is a small pipe connecting the resident’s gas to the main line in the street. Existing gas service lines will be connected to the gas main. Customers will experience a short disruption of gas service. 

Crews may have to dig in some residents’ properties in the utility easement to achieve this task. If a resident’s property is disturbed, CenterPoint Energy will be responsible for restoring the hard and soft surfaces affected by construction. This is at no cost to the customer or resident of the construction area.​​​

What is CenterPoint Energy's progress?

Currently crews are working on E. 73rd Street spotting sewer lines and gas service while installing the new main gas pipeline. CenterPoint Energy will provide updates on the progress of construction. Thank you.​
