Connecticut Natural Gas Company (CNG) said Wednesday that a major project in West Hartford is slated to begin on March 20.

According to a news release from CNG, approximately 1,400 feet of gas main will be replaced on a section of Farmington Avenue from Walden Street to South Main Street.

“As part of the effort, the company will install underground facilities on Farmington Avenue in West Hartford. The project is designed to help provide further efficiency and resiliency on the natural gas system and meet the community’s growing energy demands. CNG is working closely with its neighbors to ensure that all improvements are performed safely and with minimal disruption to the many restaurants, residents and those who rely on this road for their business, pleasure and travel,” the release states.

The work is projected to take several weeks and will mostly be done overnight, and not during the busy weekend hours. Work will take place Sunday through Thursday, between the hours of 10 p.m. and 10 a.m., CNG said.

CNG also noted that they will restore any property that is disturbed by their work as soon as possible upon the completion of the project.

During the construction hours traffic will be detoured as necessary and signage will be posted.

Residents are being asked to drive carefully through the work zones.

Any questions regarding the scope of the work can be addressed by calling CNG at 860-727-3380 during regular business hours.
