Puget Sound Energy natural gas relocation work taking place on South Jackson Street between Second and Third avenues

First Hill Streetcar Natural Gas Project MapInfraSource, Puget Sound Energy’s natural gas service provider, started construction today along South Jackson Street between Second and Third avenues (see map). The work is to relocate portions of PSE’s natural gas system in coordination with the construction of the Seattle First Hill Streetcar Project. We expect the relocation work to be completed on or around April 21, 2013.

Work, which is expected to take place Mondays through Saturdays between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., will entail open trenching in the roadway, relocating the existing 2-inch natural gas pipeline out of the pathway of the streetcar tracks along South Jackson Street, working with adjacent natural gas customers to relocate service lines to their property, and site restoration. We recognize the inconvenience to the neighborhood, and will do our best to minimize construction impacts as much as possible, including discontinuing work during major events in the area.
