Final Phase of $2.3 Million Investment in Fredericksburg

Columbia Gas of Virginia is entering the final phase to upgrade our natural gas infrastructure in downtown Fredericksburg. This pipeline investment requires the final transfer of existing customer service lines to the new natural gas facilities; purging out residual natural gas from the old pipelines and paving of city streets. The work is expected to be completed by May 23. This project will provide safe, reliable natural gas service to residents and businesses for years to come.
