KINGSVILLE, ONT. — Enbridge Gas has announced that its Kingsville Transmission Reinforcement Pipeline Project has been completed and that the pipeline is now in service.
The $105.7-million project enables the piping of natural gas for residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural customers in Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent and surrounding areas, including the greenhouse market in the Leamington and Kingsville area, stated a Nov. 26 release.
The project saw construction of 19 kilometres of 20-inch-diameter pipeline in the town of Lakeshore and the town of Kingsville in the county of Essex. Components included a new valve site and tie-in to the Panhandle Pipeline between Belle River Road and Lakeshore Road 223 in the Town of Lakeshore, and a new valve site located near Concession Road 3 East and Graham Side Road in the Town of Kingsville. Construction began earlier this year.
Project crews will return in mid-2020 to complete final project clean-up activities.
The release said that hundreds of employees and contractors were on site during construction. Environmental inspectors were also on-site full-time during construction, implementing an approved environmental plan.
