Gas Main Work - Lakeview Avenue

Lakeview Avenue Gas Main Replacement work area

National Grid will be installing approximately 3,185 linear feet of new gas mains in the full length of Lakeview Avenue beginning this week (1/12/23). See the map below depicting the work area. 

The new mains will replace existing Aldyl-A plastic pipe, which is vulnerable to premature cracking, with durable modern high density polyethylene pipe. This is part of a National program to replace this older pipe material. Residents will remain connected to the old gas main until the new main is online and their service is connected to it. National Grid will be contacting users to coordinate disconnecting from the old main and connection to the new main; someone must be present for them to make the changeover more details will be provided by National Grid. Please do not call the Town about the connections, National Grid will contact you. 

Roads will remain open for travel and residents will have access to their property while the work is being performed. Construction will be limited to Monday through Saturday, 7 AM to 3:30 PM, excluding holidays. Traffic control measures will be utilized when necessary. Trenches will be temporarily paved at the end of every day and a final pavement for the whole project will be done once the job is complete. It is anticipated that this project will take until April 15, 2023 to complete. We thank you for your patience.

Note that National Grid is coordinating with the Falmouth School system to minimize impacts with the Falmouth Public School buses. Work will not start until 9 AM on school days.
