Central Hudson is replacing certain natural gas mains (which run along roads and streets) and service lines (which connect to individual homes, apartment buildings and businesses) that are comprised of cast iron and steel in communities throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley to ensure the safety and reliability of the natural gas system.
Central Hudson is working with Precision Pipeline Solutions, to install new natural gas distribution mains and services. Replacement of approximately 9,200 feet of gas lines in the Village of Montgomery began in March and the project is estimated to take 6 months to complete. Construction trenching will occur along:
- Elizabeth St
- Bridge St, between Elizabeth St and Charles St
- Charles St, between Marron Ct and Union St
- Taft Ave, between Charles St and Jennings St
- Clinton St, between Bridge St and Union St
- Clinton St, between Spring St and Goodwill Rd
- Ward St, between Bridge St and Goodwill Rd
- Union St, between Ward St and Boyd St
- Hanover St
- Bachelor St, between Union St and Bridge St
- Oakley St
- Prospect Ter, between Clinton St and Boyd St
- Valley Ave
If your service line is affected, Precision Pipeline Solutions will contact you to schedule an appointment for its replacement. Please note that this entire process requires work to be performed both inside and outside of your home or business. Natural gas meters currently located indoors will be relocated by Central Hudson or one of our contractors to an outdoor location to improve future access to this equipment by utility personnel. Due to the current pandemic and for your safety and security, our personnel will assess the individual circumstances at each home with residents to determine when and how these activities will take place. Indoor work will be conducted by trained professionals using personal protection equipment (PPE), including masks and gloves. Personnel will also disinfect affected surfaces in the work area upon leaving the premises. A video describing these safety protocols can be viewed at CenHud.com/GasProjects. All Central Hudson employees and contractors display identification badges.
Any disruptions to your property will be restored by our crews or our professional landscape and paving contractors. If you do not own the home or property, please refer all decisions concerning this work to the property owner. Central Hudson is working closely with your municipal officials in planning this work, such as coordination with paving, restoration, and other planned infrastructure projects. We appreciate your patience as we install new facilities to better serve your needs. If you have any questions about this activity, please do not hesitate to contact me at (845) 240-3688.
