Xcel Energy Making Repairs and Replacements to Natural Gas Pipelines Throughout Frisco
A note from Xcel:
Xcel Energy is investing in Colorado by modernizing its natural gas system to ensure you have clean, safe, reliable energy. We do this by regularly testing our natural gas pipelines and making repairs and replacements as needed to ensure the continued reliability and safety of these facilities.
As a result of our efforts to maintain these facilities, we discovered that we need to excavate, inspect and make appropriate repairs to certain sections of our gas transmission pipeline that runs through the town of Frisco.
The majority of our work will take place along the “Frisco Pathway” between 4th Avenue and Madison Avenue. All bike and pedestrian traffic will be detoured 24 hours a day from this section of the pathway to Creekside Drive or Emily Lane. This work will start on Thursday, August 8th, and we expect construction to last approximately 10 to 14 days, or until August 22nd.
We also will be doing work on 4th Avenue near the entrance to Walter Byron Park and on a site in Walter Byron Park. The Walter Byron Park excavation, inspection and repair operations will begin on Monday, August 19th and should be completed by Friday, August 23rd.
Work hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. During our work you can expect to hear noise from heavy equipment being used.
You should not lose natural gas service during our work. However, as a reminder, if you detect a sulfur or “rotten egg” smell inside your home, it could be the odorant we put in natural gas to help detect leaks. If you notice that smell, leave your home immediately. Do not turn any electrical devices on or off, do not use a garage door opener and never use any phone until you are outside and away. Then call 911 or call us at 1-800-895-2999.
If you have any questions about this work, feel free to contact me directly at 303-245-2285 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your patience as we work quickly and safely to improve your natural gas service.
