Crews will not work on Monday, July 4, 2022, in observance of Independence Day. Crews will resume working on July 5, 2022.

During the week of July 5, we expect to work in the following area:

We will maintain two-way traffic through work areas. Parking restrictions will be in place. Homes and businesses will remain accessible.

Schedules are subject to change.

We are installing about 1.2 miles of natural gas line in Fort Collins, Colorado for the Grant Avenue Natural Gas Project.  Work will take place in the following areas:

  • Grant Avenue, between Cherry and Mulberry streets.
  • Mulberry Street, between Grant Avenue and Shields Street.
  • Alley north of Mountain Avenue, between Grant Avenue and Bungalow Court.

This work allows us to continue to provide safe, reliable service and enhances system resiliency during extreme weather.

Work on the Grant Avenue Natural Gas Project is expected to begin in June 2022 and continue through fall 2022.

Schedules are subject to change.

During work, you may notice:

  • Marking of utility lines and utility survey holes.
  • Road and sidewalk closures.
  • Traffic control.
  • Temporary changes to access.
  • Construction noise.

We’ll restore work areas to preconstruction conditions as weather allows.

We install natural gas line by open trenching and boring.

  • Open trenching involves digging a trench and placing the natural gas line in the trench.
  • Boring uses a bore machine to create an underground pathway through which the line is pulled or drilled.

We are committed to maintaining a safe working environment in your community. For your safety and the safety of our crews, remember these tips:

  • Watch for construction crews and equipment.
  • Do not enter construction areas.
  • Obey signage and directions from crews.
  • Reduce speeds while traveling.
  • Observe parking restrictions.
  • Remain flexible as work progresses and work areas change.

Public safety is at the foundation of all we do. The safety of the public around our natural gas system influences every decision we make.

If you ever suspect a natural gas leak, leave your home or business immediately. Once you are safely away, call 911, then Xcel Energy at 800-895-2999.
