1859 Natural Gas Pipe Removed In Chicago

On Friday, June 28, 2019, a crew from Peoples Gas Chicago removed a 10-foot section of a 160-year-old main running under an intersection a few blocks west of Chicago’s Navy Pier and replaced it with a modern plastic natural gas pipe.

The replacement is part of the Peoples Gas System Modernization Program (SMP), a multi-decade effort to improve the long-term safety and reliability of Chicago’s natural gas delivery system by upgrading more than 2,000 miles of deteriorating natural gas pipes.
