As previously reported Washington Gas and Light (WGL) will be replacing the gas main on Franklin Street between Summit Avenue and Connecticut Avenue. The start date is Monday, July 17th, weather permitting. This work will be performed by NPL, subcontractor for Washington Gas.
Washington Gas will provide traffic controllers for the safety of the residents and the crew. The disturbance along this block of the Franklin Street roadway will be significant, as the gas line replacement work will be performed slightly right of the street’s center line, limiting traffic to one lane. There will be no parking permitted on either side of Franklin Street as the work proceeds. The project length is estimated to be approximately 2-3 months, with repaving likely to occur by the end of the calendar year.
Residents of this Franklin Street block have received direct communications from WGL regarding the gas main replacement work.
Thank you for your patience.
