Washington Gas Information Meeting

Thursday, May 16, 2019


Notice of Upcoming Washington Gas Main Replacement Work

Washington Gas is planning to begin an infrastructure replacement project in the northeast portion of the Town in June of this year.  An informational meeting with representatives from Washington Gas has been scheduled for May 16 at 7:00 p.m. in the Town Hall for residents to learn more about the upcoming project.  

The project involves replacing the existing gas mains in the street and the service lines to each house.  Any gas meters that are located inside a house will be moved outside in accordance with current safety standards.  The new gas mains will improve system reliability and increase capacity, as the existing gas infrastructure has reached the end of its functional lifespan.  The project is expected to take approximately 12 months to complete, although the contractor will be on each street for a much shorter amount of time.  

Although the work will be disruptive, it is necessary given the age of the existing infrastructure.  More information about the project will be available at the public meeting and on the Town website following the meeting.  The Town will work with Washington Gas’ contractor to ensure accurate and timely notice to residents of scheduled work, lane closures, service interruptions, and parking restrictions.  Streets scheduled for gas main replacement include:

• Aspen Street (between Maple Avenue and Chatham Road), 
• Blackthorn Street, 
• Chatham Road, 
• East West Highway, 
• Leland Street (between Maple Avenue and Meadow Lane), 
• Lynn Drive, 
• Maple Avenue (between Oak Lane and East West Highway), 
• Meadow Lane (between Aspen Street and East West Highway), 
• Oak Lane, and,
• Woodbine Street (between Oak Lane and Meadow Lane)

Following the work, the Town will make necessary concrete repairs and will coordinate the repaving of each street with Washington Gas.  Please contact the Town Office at 301-654-7144 or by email to townoffice@townofchevychase.org if you have any questions about the proposed work.
