Nicor Gas Enhancements to Occur in Richton Park & Matteson

Natural Gas Pipeline Replacement

Nicor Gas will be replacing approximately 2.5 miles of 10- and 20-inch pipe with a new 24-inch natural gas transmission pipeline located within the ComEd right-of-way beginning west of Central Avenue to west of Governors Highway in Richton Park and Matteson. Construction is anticipated to conclude by October 2021.

As part of this project, we will be operating a boring machine located within the right-of-way at the Central and Cicero Avenue crossings. This machine will be used to safely install
the transmission pipeline underground with limited excavation. Throughout the duration of the project, Nicor Gas and our contractor NPL will be utilizing Central Avenue, Cicero
Avenue and Governors Highway to access our facilities in the right-of-way. Please be aware that you may notice increased traffic as well as construction equipment and vehicles on
these roads during the project. Nicor Gas is working closely with community leaders to reduce the impact that construction may have on local roads and other pathways.
