West Wooster and South Main to be affected by gas line work

Columbia Gas of Ohio has provided the City with the following tentative work schedule for the continued installation of the natural gas line installation occurring downtown.

Beginning Aug. 10, crews will begin installing the natural gas main line along the eastbound lane of West Wooster Street, which will require the closure of that lane of traffic.

This portion of the installation is anticipated to last through next week. Installation on South Main Street will continue, resulting in a single lane of traffic through next week as well.

A detour route around the work zone will be posted.

Restoration and service line installation crews will continue following the main line installation. Currently, service line efforts are focused on City Parking Lot 1. Once they are complete in Lot 1, the focus will shift back to Main Street. Restoration crews are continuing work on E. Oak, N. Main, and East Court Street.
