Update: Gas line

An inspector gave us a passing grade on a safety check this morning. Everything is moving forward on schedule.

The workers from the company that laid the new pipe had to dig several large holes through the parking lot. They have filled the holes with gravel, covered the gravel with concrete, and have topped it with asphalt this afternoon.

Gas line installed; cleanup underway

Work went quickly today. The 4-inch flexible gas line is in place. The holes are filled with gravel. At some point the gravel will be covered with blacktop.

Repairs to the Gas Line

The natural gas line that leads to both the Cathedral, Rectory, and School is being replaced. The original line was probably installed in the 1950s when the campus buildings were converted from coal to gas.

The gas company's line runs north and south along Boulder Avenue. Holy Family taps into that line behind a meter on Boulder between the church and school.

The work should take several days.
