Nicor Gas is in the process of modernizing the system that delivers natural gas safely and reliably to its customers. The project requires the replacement of a 20” natural gas main in two locations on Madison Street between Hawthorne Avenue and Parkside Avenue and between Parkside and Poplar.
On Friday, July 29th between 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., the project will require expelling a natural gas release (masked with an orange scent) at Madison and Poplar. This natural gas release will create a loud noise that will be heard in the surrounding area. Residents should not be concerned with this process, as it is safe, highly controlled, and necessary for the replacement of the gas main.
For immediate questions or comments, please contact Tony Cabezas with Nicor at 630.918.0089.
