Central Hudson is replacing certain natural gas mains which run along roads and streets and service lines that connect to individual homes, apartment buildings and businesses that are comprised of cast iron and steel in communities throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley to ensure the safety and reliability of the natural gas system, officials say.

The majority of these lines are located in cities, villages and areas gas service was first offered in the Mid-Hudson Valley. Many of these pipelines were installed in the 1930s or earlier, according to Central Hudson.

"We're replacing older natural gas pipelines at an accelerated pace to enhance system reliability, safety and efficiency," Central Hudson states. "Central Hudson is undertaking a comprehensive natural gas main and service replacement program in select communities throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley, to address and modernize aging infrastructure. This initiative is part of an effort to improve the safety, reliability and performance of the natural gas distribution system."

Central Hudson is working in the City of Poughkeepsie, Town of Poughkeepsie, Kingston, Highland Falls and Montogomery. The installation will take five to six months and will lead to road closures, lane changes, alternating traffic and delays.

The process also requires Central Hudson to work both inside and outside impacted homes or businesses. During installation, Central Hudson must access a number of homes to "inspect and verify the operating condition of your gas piping and appliances."

"In the event we need to complete indoor work, all Central Hudson employees and contractors are adhering to the guidance provided by the CDC and local health officials in an effort to keep our communities healthy and safe. This includes mask wearing at all times and social distancing whenever possible," a Central Hudson spokesperson told Hudson Valley Post.
