As part of Atlanta Gas Light’s commitment to safely and reliably provide natural gas to our communities, we are replacing the natural gas mains and some service lines in the Buckhead area with newer, more advanced pipe through the Piedmont Enhancement Project.
The Piedmont Enhancement Project will be completed in phases over a two-year period. As with all our projects, safety is a top priority. We will make every effort to minimize inconveniences to property owners and community members along the route.
The community can anticipate construction activity to start the week of June 28. Crews will mobilize construction equipment in the area. Lane closures will begin in July. While the project spans several miles and will take two years to complete, work will be conducted in 1,500-foot increments. Roads will only be closed along the sections of the project path where work is currently being performed. Within these areas, one lane will be closed 24 hours a day, seven days a week while a second lane will only be closed during work hours.View project map →

Safety begins with setting rigorous operating standards
By equipping our team members with safety training, tools and the resources necessary to keep our communities safe, they can respond when called upon.
Safety first means continuous monitoring
Regular inspections of our systems ensure safety, security, reliability and resiliency.
Our safety training, operating standards and monitoring meet and exceed all regulations
That’s because putting safety first is not just a top priority, it’s our number one value.
Natural gas is a colorless, odorless fuel. As a safety precaution, we add a chemical odorant called mercaptan that gives natural gas an odor often associated with rotten eggs. This distinctive scent allows you to smell a potential leak if it occurs.
Look for discolored vegetation, blowing dirt or continuously bubbling water in the area of a buried gas line.
Listen for a hissing sound.
Smell for the distinctive “rotten egg” odor of natural gas.
Never try to find the leak yourself. If you suspect one:
Leave the area immediately, warning others in the area as you leave. Keep everyone away from the area until emergency assistance arrives.
Avoid touching anything that may cause a spark. This includes lighters, matches, cigarettes, flashlights, light switches and telephones in the area of the suspected leak. Wait until you are a safe distance away before using your cell phone.
Atlanta Gas Light at 877.427.4321 or 911 once you are out of the area of the suspected leak and in a safe place. Stay away until Atlanta Gas Light or emergency personnel indicate it is safe to return.
