- Pipelines dating back to the 1960s will get swapped out for new ones this fall. WPS crews in Minocqua started upgrading the natural gas distribution system in September.
The upgrades include two and a half miles of natural gas mains and several service pipelines. WPS says these upgrades will benefit many people.
"It will help us continue to provide safe and reliable natural gas to all of our customers, our business customers, as well as our residential customers," said WPS Community Relations Leader Leah Van Zile.
The project started on Cedar Street and should end near the intersection of Oneida Street and East Park Avenue. The project could wrap up in mid-December.
