At Atlanta Gas Light, we’re continually improving our natural gas pipeline infrastructure. This system brings safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly natural gas to our customers in Georgia. Enhancing and expanding our infrastructure is essential to meeting growing demand in our state.
In October 2009, the Georgia Public Service Commission approved an important system upgrade to improve our ability to serve our customers with natural gas on peak demand days called Georgia STRIDE -- Strategic Infrastructure Development and Enhancement. Atlanta’s metropolitan area has experienced rapid growth in the past two decades, and much of that growth has taken place in regions farther removed from Atlanta Gas Light’s existing interstate supply points and high-pressure transmission pipeline system.
Investing in Georgia
Atlanta Gas Light’s investment in natural gas infrastructure is helping to sustain the prosperity of local communities. We’re excited that our investment in Georgia is expected to employ 150-200 construction workers each year -– everything from right-of-way contractors and heavy-equipment operators to pipefitters and welders.
Best of all, we’re ensuring families and business owners in our community have ready access to America’s most abundant, environmentally friendly fuel… today and tomorrow.
As with all of our construction projects, safety is our top priority. Great care will be taken in all phases of the project from beginning to end in each neighborhood. We will make every effort to minimize inconvenience to property owners along the route.

North Fulton and East Cobb Counties
(Johnson Header Pipeline)
The Johnson Header Pipeline runs from our regulator station (which helps control the flow of gas in the distribution system) at Maner Road in Cobb County through north Fulton County and ends at our Cherokee LNG (liquefied natural gas) facility in Cherokee County. Work on this pipeline will be completed in phases, most of which will not require construction.
In East Cobb, less than two miles of new pipeline will be installed along existing Atlanta Gas Light easement starting near the intersection of I-285 and Cobb Parkway and ending in the Wildwood complex off Powers Ferry Road. Pipeline construction is anticipated to start in April 2012 and last approximately six months. Additionally, regulator stations will be installed on Atlanta Gas Light property in the Powers Ferry Road area (near the intersection with Windy Ridge Parkway) and on Johnson Ferry Road (north of the intersection with Lower Roswell Road). We will notify affected property owners and residents of our work schedule in advance of construction.
The remainder of the work on the Johnson Header Pipeline in Cobb and Fulton counties involves integrity testing of our existing pipeline and will require minimal construction. The testing allows Atlanta Gas Light to better manage future volume of natural gas in our transmission system. Part of the pipeline from the Powers Ferry Road area to the Willeo Road area will be tested in Spring 2012. The remainder of the pipeline north and south of this section is slated for testing in 2013. We will notify affected property owners around testing sites and above ground infrastructure of our work schedule in advance of testing activities and any construction resulting from the testing.
Several regulator stations were installed in 2011 as part of the Johnson Header Pipeline project in Cobb and Fulton counties at locations on Maner Road, Church Road, Atlanta Road, Columns Drive, Willeo Road, Green Road, and Hickory Flat Road.

East Spalding, Northwest Butts and East Henry counties
(Central Region Pipeline)
Surveying for our Central Region Pipeline was completed in 2010-2011. This transmission pipeline will start at McDonough Road in eastern Spalding County and then continue for approximately 26 miles through western and northern Butts County and across the eastern tip of Henry County to Highway 81 East. Construction of the pipeline got underway in September/October 2011 and is scheduled to be complete in 2012. Property owners in the area of construction were notified in advance.

Cherokee and Forsyth counties
(Cherokee to Forsyth Pipeline)
The Cherokee to Forsyth Pipeline follows an existing Atlanta Gas Light easement which runs approximately 14.5 miles from our Cherokee LNG (liquefied natural gas) facility near Ball Ground in Cherokee County to a point near Atlanta Highway and Park Place in Forsyth County (south of the Cumming city limits). Construction will get underway in June 2012 and last through October. Affected property owners are being notified prior to construction.
