National Grid Gas Main Installation & Service Replacements

Posted on:

CB14 has received information that National Grid will be working starting on Monday, August 2, 2010 on Farragut Road between Flatbush Avenue and East 23rd Street for gas main installation and service replacements to accommodate increasing demand of gas in the area.   The full notice is here:

Dear Valued Customer:

Please be advised that National Grid will be working on your block to install a new gas main/service in the next week or two.  We would like to inform you about the nature of our work in case you have any questions.  We are working on Farragut Rd between Flatbush Ave and E 23rd Street.

National Grid’s scheduled gas main installation and gas service replacements are necessary to accommodate the increased demand of gas in the area.  We are up-sizing the pipe diameter to boost pressures in the region and add to the reliability of service to our customers.  The main installation may be followed with service work to your building.  This timeframe between the two operations may take several weeks.  The anticipated duration of all of our work will be approximately ninety (90) business days.

Street Paving

Street paving will be repaved to insure a smooth surface. Paving is done in two steps:

Base paving – This first step restores the paving to two inches below street level and will remain so for 21 working days or up to a month.

Topping – In this final step, high-grade asphalt is applied so that the restored areas are even with the surrounding roadway.

Concrete Restoration

Sidewalks that are affected by our work will be filled with a temporary asphalt pavement.

Concrete openings should be restored within 21 days, with the exception of work done during mid-winter. Some delays in final restoration may occur because concrete can not be poured in inclement or cold weather.

Please note that National Grid may require access to your gas meter and service valve to perform the necessary work.  If the gas meter and valve is not accessible (i.e. behind sheetrock or obstructed) then you will need to provide clear access so that National Grid or its contractors (Hallen Construction) can complete the work safely.  Neither National Grid nor its contractors will be involved in the clearing or rebuilding of any obstructions. You will be notified by either National Grid or Hallen Construction when access to your home is required.

We apologize for any inconvenience to you and your family. If you have any questions please call our contractor Hallen Construction at (718) 533-9400, Monday through Friday 7a.m – 3 p.m., or our Community Investments Department, Renee McClure at (718) 403-2663.


As always, in the event of an emergency, call our emergency number at (718) 643-4050 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Thank you for your cooperation.
