Gas Pipeline To Be Constructed From Century To Nine Mile Road
April 17, 2017
An underground natural gas pipeline through North Escambia from Century to Nine Mile Road is the works.
If all goes as planned, the Florida Public Utilities gas pipeline could be under construction as early as June 1 with an estimated completion date of early 2018, according to Barry Kennedy of FPU.
The pipeline will interconnect to an existing pipeline and begin on Fannie Road just northeast of Century on the Alabama/Florida state line. The pipeline will follow Fannie Road to Old Flomaton Road to State Road 4 to North Century Boulevard.
The 12-inch gas pipeline will continue south along the right-of-way of Highway 29 from Century to Old Chemstrand Road. From there, an eight-inch line will follow Old Chemstrand road to Ascend, while another eight-inch line will continue south on Highway 29 to Highway 95A in Cantonment to West Roberts Road to Pine Forest Road to West Nine Mile Road where the project will connect to an existing gas system.
The pipeline will be constructed on existing right of way, mostly in ditches, along Highway 29 and other roadways.
A public hearing to discuss the pipeline will be held at 6:30 p.m. today at the Century Town Hall. No other public meetings are planned.
