  • Project Update (as of June 9, 2017): The crew is still installing eight-inch gas main along Mercury and Jupiter streets; they have also drilled in all of the two-inch gas main along Saturn Drive.  A crew will be working on Saturn Drive until noon each day aimed at avoiding traffic to and from the community pool.  The crew has continued to encounter some rock but is close to getting back on schedule. 

    North Star is a 209-single-family, residential community located in the Upper Pike Creek Region of northern New Castle County.

    In 2014, the neighborhood’s residents started a grassroots effort for bringing natural gas service to their homes. In 2015, the community obtained the required number of applications to move the gas main extension project forward, solidifying its place in our 2017 project plan.

    Following a competitive bid process to partner with an approved contractor, we expect construction to begin late March, weather permitting. The construction project will include installing more than 20,000 feet of new natural gas main throughout the community. This extensive project is projected to conclude with final restoration in October 2017. Please visit this page for construction updates throughout the project period.
