Work in Your Neighborhood
Enhancing and expanding our natural gas pipeline infrastructure is essential to maintaining that commitment while meeting the growing demand for energy in our state.
During the past two decades, Atlanta's metropolitan area has experienced rapid growth. Much of that development has taken place in north Atlanta, and we realized that we needed to upgrade and expand our transmission pipeline system to serve these thriving communities.
In October 2009, the Georgia Public Service Commission approved our Georgia STRIDE (Strategic Infrastructure Development and Enhancement) initiative to upgrade and expand our pipeline system, thereby improving our ability to serve our customers with natural gas on peak demand days.
Investing in Georgia
Atlanta Gas Light’s investment in natural gas infrastructure helps support the continued economic development of communities in north metro Atlanta. In addition to bringing efficient and affordable natural gas to underserved areas, our infrastructure projects also help create jobs. In fact, our STRIDE projects annually employed between 150-200 construction workers, from right-of-way contractors and heavy-equipment operators to pipefitters and welders.
More important, 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 priority. Great care has been taken in all phases of the project, and we make every effort to minimize inconvenience to property owners along the route.
Current ProjectsJohnson Header Pipeline (North Fulton and East Cobb Counties)
Activity on this portion of the Johnson Header Pipeline—which runs from Green Road in Milton through North Fulton County and ends at our Cherokee LNG facility (liquefied natural gas) in Cherokee County—primarily involves integrity testing of our existing pipeline. This work occurs in phases, some of which have been completed, and is expected to last through the end of 2013. Neighboring property owners will be notified in advance of construction and testing activities.

The Eastside Pipeline
While not officially part of Atlanta Gas Light’s Pipeline Replacement Program that was completed in 2013, construction of the Eastside Pipeline is another replacement project designed to ensure that our pipelines will continue to serve our customers safely and reliably.
Construction of the Eastside Pipeline began in the second half of 2012 and is expected to continue through the end of 2013. The new 24-inch coated steel transmission line will replace a pipe that was installed in the early 1950s.
The segment is approximately 28 miles and runs from our Riverdale liquefied natural gas facility in Clayton County to a connection point in our transmission system near the intersection of Buford Highway and Clairmont Road in DeKalb County.
