Atmos Energy is scheduled to make their final gas line tie-in on their major line replacement project on Thursday, November 17 on Midway Road just south of Belt Line Road. Both the northbound curb lane and center lane of Midway Road north of Beltway Drive will be closed for the majority of the day, reducing Midway to one lane in this section of Addison. Once Atmos starts to tie the old gas lines in with the new one, crews cannot stop until the project is completed.
As part of the tie-in process, Atmos will oversee a controlled release of natural gas between the hours of 1pm and 2pm.
The controlled release will occur at the southeast corner of Midway and Belt Line Roads and allow employees to work on the pipe safely. People in the area may smell the odor of natural gas and hear moderate noise during this process. Atmos Energy employees will be on site to monitor the work as natural gas is vented into the atmosphere. There will be no interruption of natural gas service to Atmos Energy customers while work is being performed.
