Natural Gas Main Replacement Project to Begin Monday on SE 140th Street and 432nd Ave. SE

PSE Natural Gas Replacement Project Affected Area

Puget Sound Energy plans to upgrade the natural gas system along SE 140th Street and 432nd Ave. SE beginning on Monday, September 24th. The project is anticipated to last approximately six weeks. Typical work hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As part of this work, some customers may have the gas service link to their business replaced, requiring a short interruption of service. PSE crews will provide those affected customers with more information in advance of the service line work on their property and will work closely with businesses to not impact business hours. 

The work requires PSE to replace the existing natural gas main, which was installed in 1981, with a larger, corrosion-resistant plastic main, as well as replace select individual service lines as necessary. 

After gas main construction is complete, there will be temporary patches in the road and/or sidewalk. These temporary patches will remain until a contractor crew from AA Asphalting, Inc. returns to complete the final road and/or sidewalk restoration. The restoration schedule is dependent upon weather, permitting and crew availability. 

PSE is committed to completing the work safely and efficiently and crews will strive to reduce impacts to neighbors. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Project Manager Jeff McCoy at 206-716-2615 or email jeff.mccoy@pse.com and reference project number 109110267. Thank you in advance for your patience during this project.
