West Main Natural Gas Pipeline Project

West Main Natural Gas Pipeline Replacement Project

We are working to provide safe, reliable service

Project Overview

As part of our Integrity Pipeline Management Program, we will replace approximately 77 miles of 95 miles of high pressure transmission pipeline between Westminister, Colo., and the Wyoming border. The additional pipe will be abandoned or switched to distribution uses. This work will ensure safe, reliable service to our current and new customers along the Front Range. 

Work in Larimer and Weld counties starts in 2012 and is expected to continue through 2014. Work in Boulder County starts in 2013 and is expected to continue through 2015.

Project Updates

1/10/2014
In 2013, Xcel Energy replaced approximately 16 miles of natural gas pipeline in Fort Collins and Loveland. This work will result in improved service reliability, help Xcel Energy maintain the safety of the system and meet the future need for natural gas.

In Fort Collins, crews have finished installing new natural gas pipeline and are doing restoration work off the roadway. Thunderbird Drive between McClelland Drive and College Avenue is now open. During the week of Jan. 13 crews will make temporary road repairs on Thunderbird Drive.

In Loveland, crews have finished installing new natural gas pipeline and are doing restoration work off the roadway. After crews installed the new natural gas pipeline, it was too cold to repave the road with asphalt. Crews made temporary road repairs which may make the roadway rough until final paving is complete.

Crews will repave Wilson from 22nd Street south to 14th Street and then west on 14th Street a quarter mile in the spring when the weather is warm enough for the asphalt to properly adhere to the road surface.
