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, primarily along 1300 East. (See map.)
Construction began in mid-January 2014 near
the intersection of 6500 South and 1300 East and has continued for
past two years with crews working at various locations along the
project route, including additional intersections and canal crossings,
to expedite completion of construction. Allowing for weather and
other project demands, the entire Feeder Line 6 project is expected
to be completed in 2016.
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
