The section of pipeline being tested spans over Warrick, Gibson and Vanderburgh counties and stretches from a natural gas purchase point on Highway 57 north of Elberfeld, will cross Interstate 69, and ends along Highway 41 in Darmstadt. The purpose of this test is to increase the capacity within the pipeline to improve reliability and provide for future growth along the pipeline route.“To ensure the continued reliability of our natural gas pipeline systems and service, Vectren is continuing to enhance our system to improve the gas infrastructure in the Vectren South territory,” said Brad Ellsworth, Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana – South president. “These infrastructure enhancements are vital to meeting federal requirements and ensuring the continued safety of our system.”Work is expected to continue through the end of the week, weather permitting. No customers will be affected during construction, and motorists are asked to be safe while driving around crews. Below is a map of the project route.
