Puget Sound Energy natural gas pipeline project
Sumner natural gas line relocation
Winter 2010-11 project completion
- We completed construction on the natural gas line in December 2010
To accommodate the City of Sumner's Traffic Avenue and Main Street public improvement project involving road, sidewalk and intersection work, Puget Sound Energy relocated and upgraded approximately one-half mile of 2-, 4- and 6-inch natural gas supply line in Sumner. The replacement work began on Fryar Avenue near 142nd Avenue East and continued south on Fryar Avenue through the intersection of Traffic Avenue and Main Street. To minimize disruption as much as possible, PSE completed this city permitted work at night.

Test your natural gas knowledge by taking this short survey
How does natural gas get to my home or business?
Natural gas is a fossil fuel composed almost entirely of methane. Interstate pipelines transport natural gas to regional utility natural gas systems, where it is metered and delivered through a network of local mains, service lines and, ultimately, to customer homes and businesses. More than one-third of all Washington state households and businesses use natural gas.
Committed to keeping you informed
PSE will continue to provide updates to the community. We will notify residents and businesses near the project area when construction will occur. We aim to complete the work with as little disruption as possible.
