Dominion East Ohio Gas Improvement Project

Dominion East Ohio Gas has started a project in the Village of South Russell to improve service supply of natural gas.
The project started on October 19th and is scheduled to be completed in January 2017.  The new installation of a larger supply line is located on East Bell Road from the intersection of Bell Road and Chillicothe Road (St. Rt. 306) and continued eastward to just east of Paw Paw Lake Drive and will connect to the Dominion transmission line.
All work is being performed in the village’s utility right-of-way, mostly on the south side of Bell Road except between Kensington Drive and Chillicothe Road where work will be performed on the north side of Bell Road.  Although this time of year work is weather related, traffic will be maintained when working but motorist can expect some delays.  Please watch for signage and obey the traffic controllers.  Safety is our number one concern.
Below is the residential letter that all homeowners in the affected work area should have received in their mail.
