Atmos NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (November 19, 2019) –  Atmos Energy is conducting a pipe replacement project that requires the closure of one of the southbound lanes on US 40 from Anglers Drive to Pine Grove Road. Local motorists should consider using alternate routes to avoid delays.

“We will be working as safely and expeditiously as possible over the next week,” said Kevin Kerrigan, Atmos Energy Manager.  “We want to thank you for your patience and ask that you pay close attention to road closures throughout the project.”

In addition to detours, the Steamboat Springs Transit bus stop located on the south side of Anglers Road will be temporarily moved to the north side. 

Pipe Replacement Project

Beginning Wednesday, November 20, 2019, highly trained crews will be replacing a section of existing natural gas distribution pipeline with approximately 500 feet of 6-inch steel pipe. The new pipeline will enhance the safety and reliability of our system.

“Safety is Atmos Energy’s core value, and our technicians will continue to monitor the affected area throughout the project,” said Kerrigan.

Atmos Energy reminds everyone if you smell gas, act fast!  Leave the area immediately and call 911 or the Atmos Energy emergency line at 1.866.322.8667. To learn more about natural gas leak detection, visit:
