Project Information

Need for the project: The Magna Natural Gas Pipeline Replacement Project is located in Salt Lake County from Magna Township to Salt Lake City. This project is necessary to keep pace with increased demand for natural gas due to customer growth along the Wasatch Front. It will also enhance our ability to continue providing safe, clean, reliable natural gas service by replacing aging infrastructure and making our system easier to monitor and maintain.

Location: This section of natural gas pipeline is located in Salt Lake County. Its location will be along 8000 West from 2700 South to 2100 South, and between 8000 West and 900 West along 2100 South and the South Frontage road of SR-201.

Construction Schedule: We are committed to completing this work as quickly and with as little inconvenience to local businesses and residents as possible. Crews are scheduled to start in March 2021 and finish in Fall 2022. To expedite construction, multiple crews may be working simultaneously at various locations and may perform nighttime and weekend work. No interruption to residents’ natural gas service is anticipated during this project.

To provide room for crews and equipment, some temporary lane restrictions, especially at intersections, will be necessary. Please drive carefully and obey all signs and flaggers. To avoid congestion in construction zones, motorists are advised to use alternate routes when possible and to allow plenty of travel time to get where they're going. At all times, our crews will make every effort to maintain access to businesses and driveways in construction zones.

We appreciate your patience.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Dominion Energy, we are committed to providing safe, reliable natural gas service at the lowest possible cost.

In recent years, as part of our continuing efforts to meet growing demand for natural gas while improving overall system integrity, we have begun replacing vital sections of our underground pipeline system serving the Wasatch Front. In most cases we are replacing older pipe with newer, stronger and larger diameter pipe.

These new pipelines carry more supplies, enabling us to better serve the growing number of new homes and businesses in Utah.

They also enhance safety and reliability by making our system easier to monitor and maintain. Some of the older sections of our system have pipe in varying diameters, ranging from six to 20 inches. Replacing these with pipe of the same diameter makes them accessible to "smart tools. These tools -- commonly known as "pigs" -- use MRI technology to inspect the pipe interior, making it possible to detect and correct potential problems before they occur.

No. Redundancies in our system should make it possible to replace the existing pipeline without interrupting service to any customers.

If your property is on or adjacent to the right-of-way, you will receive prior notification by mail alerting you to construction. We work closely with residents and city officials to minimize potential impacts on residents' property. If we do need to access its legal right-of-way to work on or near your property, the company will make reasonable efforts to ensure the landscape is returned as closely as possible to its previous state. This does not include replacement, repair or compensation for unauthorized structures, plants, objects and etc. currently located within the right-of-way.

Residents can make the process easier by making sure that items such as large, deep-rooted trees, concrete slabs, sheds, fences or other structures do not encroach upon our right-of-way. These items not only violate right-of-way policy but also pose a safety hazard and may hinder our ability to reach our pipeline in case of emergency or to perform necessary maintenance.

For more information about what is and is not allowed on pipeline rights-of-way, request a company brochure by contacting a representative at 801-324-3149 or view our brochure.

Construction may require temporary lane closures and/or detours. During construction, we strive to maintain traffic in both directions on city streets at all times, however temporary lane restrictions can be expected.

Private driveways and access to side streets and business parking lots may also occasionally be temporarily blocked by excavation work. When not in use, open trenches will be plated to maintain access during business hours, at night and on weekends.

Any changes in traffic or access will be kept to a minimum and will be as brief as possible.

Before construction starts in front of your home or business, a company representative will contact you to discuss where you would like access maintained. Signs notifying the public that businesses are open during construction will be made available for those who request them.

For the latest information on traffic impacts and lane restrictions, visit this site or email us to receive weekly construction updates by email.

Residents can reduce the risk of accidents by driving carefully in construction zones and keeping children away from the construction site. We work closely with city and state transportation officials to ensure safety and minimize inconvenience to drivers and pedestrians during construction.
