Natural Gas Pipeline Upgrades Are Coming To Barry (Racine to Greenview/Lincoln)
Peoples Gas has been part of Chicago’s history for more than 165 years. We’re proud of our long-standing service to Chicago and all the homes and businesses we provide with natural gas.
We are in the midst of one of the nation’s largest efforts to replace much of the aging natural gas pipes in Chicago to allow us to continue to provide safe and reliable gas service.
We will be installing a large diameter main on Barry from Racine to Greenview/Lincoln starting Monday, October 26th. The amount of time required for installation varies block by block, depending on the technical requirements at each location, but installation could take between one and three months.
Before installation begins, we may need to replace the smaller diameter mains and services that deliver natural gas to your home or business. If that work is required on your block, we will send you separate notification about that process, including information about scheduling an appointment to mark the location of your service pipe and gas meter.
Once work begins, there will be parking restrictions on some streets in the area. Also, equipment and material will be stored on site due to the design and nature of the project. As the project progresses, temporary repairs will be made to streets, sidewalks and parkways until permanent restoration can be completed.
We are committed to working quickly and efficiently to minimize any disruption to you and your neighbors. We will contact you again closer to the time of construction to give you more information about what to expect. If you have questions regarding this project, please call customer service at 866-556-6001.
