At this time, Atmos Energy does not anticipate any road closures, but will work with local officials should something change as the project progresses. The anticipated date of completion is around late June 2020, notwithstanding any unforeseen complications.

“Atmos Energy is committed to the safety and reliability of our system. It is our number one priority,” said Mike Vallet, Danville’s Operations Supervisor, “and with that we must replace our aging infrastructure.”
During Atmos Energy’s 2009 rate case, the Kentucky Public Service Commission approved a Pipeline Replacement Program (PRP) for its service territory in Kentucky which enables Atmos Energy to replace bare steel and other aging infrastructure.
