TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Vectren has started replacing gas mains and service lines in Terre Haute.

This year, the company will upgrade five miles of gas main and 600 service lines in Terre Taute.

It's part of a multi-year program. Vectren hopes to retire a total of nearly 80 miles in Terre Haute through the end of the pipeline replacement program.

"We continue to modernize our pipeline infrastructure, replacing essentially all of our bare steel and cast-iron pipeline throughout our Indiana territory," said Richard Leger, vice president of Natural Gas Distribution, Indiana and Ohio. "Vectren remains focused on strengthening our system to not only meet federal requirements, but to also ensure the continued reliability and safe delivery of natural gas service to our customers for decades to come."

A Vectren representative will give customers an overview of the required work. Crews will fix affected yards, sidewalks and streets at the end of the project.

Streets affected during the first phase of projects include: Seabury Avenue, 20th Street, 22nd Street, 25th Street, Cruft Street, College Avenue and Hampton Avenue.

You'll want to use extra caution for some utility work in the area.
