Natural gas work to get underway on Blackburn

YORK — York City offices have announced Black Hills Energy will be conducting work within the city right-of-way along Blackburn Avenue between Third and Ninth Streets to relocate gas utilities. This work is scheduled to begin Jan. 8, depending on the weather.

The city says Black Hills’ work will be a multi-week construction project to relocate natural gas service lines along Blackburn to prepare for street replacement work scheduled for the spring. As work progresses, contractors working with Black Hills Energy will contact customers to schedule temporary service interruption. Black Hills Energy will have team members on site to oversee the work and ensure the safety of the project.

During the process, Black Hills officials encourage anyone who thinks they smell natural gas to follow the appropriate steps to guarantee their safety: leave the area and then call 911 or Black Hills Energy’s emergency line once at a safe location 888-890-5554.
