  • Union Gas will be installing a new section of pipe along the bridge that will feed into the existing pipeline and effectively bypass the damaged portion.
  • Union Gas continues to monitor the leak and is working with the Town of Gananoque to obtain the proper permitting to begin the bypass work.
  • The top priority is public safety.
  • The gas pressure in the pipeline will remain at the reduced level to minimize the leak until repairs are complete and, to allow residents continued access to natural gas.
  • The construction work has begun and is expected to be completed this weekend once all permits are in place and weather depending.
  • The bridge will remain closed to both vehicle and pedestrian travel as a safety precaution until the repair work is complete.
  • Union Gas does not anticipate any interruption in gas service for local residents during the repair work.
