LOGANVILLE, Ga. — The City of Lawrenceville Gas Department will begin a new project in Loganville in early February.
The Lawrenceville mayor and city council recently approved approximately $400,000 in budgeted funds to upgrade a portion of the community’s gas system. The project calls for replacing about 4 miles of gas mains inside the City of Loganville, upgrading 1950s-era pipe with modern-day materials.
“Lawrenceville’s gas system provides a huge resource to the city and ensures our future from a financial standpoint,” Lawrenceville City Manager Chuck Warbington said. “It is vitally important to maintain our lines as customer service and reliability are paramount to our continued success as a natural gas provider. These improvements also keep ongoing maintenance costs down due to steady upgrades and modernization of our infrastructure.”
This project will be the first of two phases and will affect residents on the following streets in Loganville: Main, Mill, Broad, Fair, CS Floyd, Camp, Rock, Pecan, Church, Covington, Long, Line, Clifford, and Highway 20/81. The project is expected to take approximately four months to complete. The City of Loganville and City of Lawrenceville will work together to keep residents updated on where and when the work will take place.
The City of Lawrenceville Natural Gas Department serves about 50,000 customers in Gwinnett, Newton, Rockdale and Walton. It is the second largest municipally owned gas department in Georgia.
