Cascade Natural Gas Corporation is in the process of replacing and updating service lines within our service territory. This is an ongoing program to ensure our customers safe and efficient natural gas service now and well into the future.
As a result of this construction, you may see some disruption of your normal traffic routes during the day. This construction activity will be kept as minimal as possible and will be cleaned up daily. Customers within the area of the replacement will be contacted regarding updating their lines and meters as the construction crew draws near.

Latest Update: September 12, 2014
Construction Crews have moved into the alley between NW State Street and NW Congress. They are working their way north starting from the intersection with NW Tumalo installing a 2-inch main. This crew is expected to reach the intersection with NW Idaho and possibly cross it on Friday, September 12.
A second crew is in the alley between NW Broadway and NW Congress, at the intersection with NW Louisiana. This crew is working South replacing gas service lines.
The work on SE Wilson is currently on hold until the directional drill crews are available to bore under SE Wilson. It is expected that the drill crew will be available to start this work the week of September 22.
Update: September 5, 2014
On Friday, August 29, a crew began installing a 2-inch main on SE Wilson Avenue and the crew should complete this install by Friday, September 5. (Note: the work on SE Wilson, from SE 2nd Street east to Dutch Bros. Coffee house is in the ROW behind the side walk).
On Monday, September 8, the crew will attempt to bore a line across SE Wilson Avenue. Once this is done, the crews will tie-in to the existing gas line, on the south side of Wilson, test and pressurize the mains installed on SE 2nd Street and SE Wilson. Then, the crew will begin tying services over to the new mains; starting on SE 2nd Street, at SE Taft Avenue, and working north.
Another crew is moving back into the alley between NW Broadway and NW Congress. They will finish connecting services to the new main. Additionally, crews will start installing a 2-inch main in the alley between NW Congress and NW State, starting at NW Tumalo Avenue, and working north towards NW Riverside Blvd.
