Feeder Line 6 Capacity Enhancement Project Website
Questar Gas is replacing a section of its system in the Salt Lake Valley known as Feeder Line 6. (Feeder lines are larger, steel pipelines that supply smaller main and individual service lines that connect to meters at homes and businesses.)
This website provides general information about the project as well as current information on construction activity and related impacts on local traffic.
This project is necessary to keep pace with increased demand for natural gas due to customer growth. It will also enhance our ability to continue providing safe, reliable natural gas service by making our system easier to monitor and maintain.
The section of Feeder Line 6 slated for replacement with new, 12-inch-diameter steel pipe is about 16.5 miles long. It runs from 3300 South Street (in Salt Lake City) to the Salt Lake/Utah County Line along 1300 East, 1700 East and Highland Dr in Draper.
In 2014, Questar Gas installed new pipe on 1300 East between 3300 South and Sego Lily Dr. and on 1700 East from 10600 South to 11400 South and at the intersection of Wasatch Blvd. In 2015, Questar Gas will install new pipe in Dimple Dell Canyon and in the City of Draper between 11400 South 1700 East and 13100 South Highland Dr. (See map.)Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-January 2015 and continue for several months with crews working at various locations simultaneously along the project route to expedite completion as quickly and safely as possible. Allowing for weather and other project demands, the section of Feeder Line 6 slated for replacement this year is expected to be tested and placed into service by October 2015.
This project may involve some nighttime and weekend work. Traffic-lane restrictions can be expected in work zones. Watch this site for the latest traffic information. Please drive carefully and obey all signs and flaggers. To avoid congestion in construction zones, motorists are advised to use alternate routes and to allow plenty of travel time to get where they're going. We appreciate your patience.
