Highway 12, City of Bentonville, Arkansas
Hwy 12 Widening Project– Due to the Arkansas Highway Department improvements and widening of Hwy 12 West of Bentonville, SourceGas will replace approximately 14,000 feet of gas main.
July 31 update: Met with our Contract Survey Crew onsite at the intersection of Highway 12, Greenhouse Road and Cornerstone Road to provide a solution to the Power Pole and Guy Wires that are currently in the existing and Prooposed City of Bentonville Right Of Way. SourceGas is planning on sharing this Right Of Way but need to maintain enough separation between their facilities and ours to ensure safety. SourceGas will plan on crossing the Intersection East to West across the State’s Right Of Way and will take all necessary precautions to ensure our depth will not interfere with planned drainage and improvements. This will be proposed to the State for tier approvals. Construction is Estimated to start in September of 2013. Project is estimated to include approximately 9,530’ of Steel Pipe and approximately 775’ of Plastic pipe.
June 12 update: SourceGas met with the City of Bentonville Engineering, Transportation and Public Works Directors on Monday, June 10th, 2013 to work between the entities to share a common General Utility Easement that exists and is maintained by the City of Bentonville which will allow SourceGas to avoid additional Right Of Way (ROW) acquisitions along the West end of the Project route from just West of the Cornerstone / Greenhouse Road Intersection West past Shell Road. This improvement helps reduces costs and impact to landowners. We are currently awaiting plans from Garver USA to be modified to show SourceGas placement within this ROW.
Estimated start of Construction will be January, 2014. Estimated Construction window is estimated to be 6 months.
