Questar to Begin Downtown Infrastructure Improvements

Press Release

April 4, 2014

Salt Lake City – Questar Gas will begin construction in April on the first of three infrastructure-improvement projects scheduled to be completed over the next several months in downtown Salt Lake City.

Questar Gas plans to replace several thousand feet of aging natural gas pipelines in major surface streets including 1000 East, 900 East, 400 South and Main Street. In most cases, Questar Gas will be replacing older steel pipe with high-strength, non-corrosive plastic pipe. These pipes are part of the company’s intermediate-high-pressure (IHP) system, which operates at pressures below 60 pounds per square inch.

These improvements are expected to enable Questar Gas to keep pace with growing customer demand for natural gas, maintain overall system integrity and continue providing safe and reliable service.

Construction will occur at the following locations and, weather permitting, for the specified times (see attached map):

  • 1000 East from 300 South to 800 South; 900 East from 300 South to 500 South; and on 300 South and 500 South from 900 East to 1000 East – April through August

  • 400 South from 1000 East to State Street – May through December

  • Main Street from 100 South to 300 South – June through July

To provide room for crews and equipment, some temporary lane restrictions, especially at intersections, will be necessary. Questar says crews will make every effort to maintain access to businesses and driveways in construction zones at all times. No interruption to residents’ natural gas service is anticipated during this project.

On Main Street, construction will take place on the east side of the street in the northbound traffic lane and will require the street to be closed while work is underway. To minimize traffic impacts, the majority of construction on Main Street will occur at night. On the 1000 East and 400 South projects, two-way traffic will be maintained at all times, but temporary lane restrictions should be expected in work zones. To avoid potential delays, motorists are advised to take alternate routes whenever possible.

These projects are part of a multi-year effort by Questar Gas to maintain system integrity by replacing aging sections of pipe throughout Utah.
