NW Natural Gas will be performing a natural gas service switchover on Wednesday, April 24 in the late morning in areas along Washington Way between SW 35th St and SW 30th St. The A.A Red Emmerson Advanced Wood Products Laboratory will be without natural gas service for the entire day. The switch over requires draining the line, which creates a very loud noise (similar to a jet engine) as pressure is released. There will also be a natural gas odor at this time which will naturally dissipate into the atmosphere. This is standard operating procedure for a natural gas switch over.

The image shows the area of work on Washington Way and the areas of noise impact along the street between SW 35th Street and SW 30th St.

For questions or comments on this closure, please contact construction manager Derek Bennet at (541) 609-6111.
