3 Pipeline Infrastructure Improvements Announced

As part of ongoing neighborhood enhancements, Dominion East Ohio pipeline infrastructure improvements are scheduled to begin soon on Cleveland’s East Side.

Improvement to infrastructure begins with the replacement of old steel mainlines.  One lane of traffic will be maintained with traffic control personnel in the work zone directing traffic.  In addition, access to adjacent driveways will be maintained and the work will take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Expect additional traffic notices as work progresses. Road construction invariably presents hazards to the public. All travelers are urged to use caution in construction zones. Public safety and the safety of workers is a top priority.
