Xcel Energy is installing a new 5-mile-long, 24-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline in Adams and Denver counties. The project, known as the North Metro Natural Gas Pipeline Project, will connect to a natural gas supply at the existing Cherokee Power Plant in Adams County located near 58th Avenue and York Street and end at a new regulator station at 43rd Avenue and Cherokee Street in Denver. The project map is displayed above.

Construction activities began in November 2017. The completion of the project, including restoring the work areas and bringing the pipeline into service, is expected in fall 2019.

The new natural gas pipeline is needed as part of Xcel Energy's commitment to system modernization within Adams and Denver counties. The project will increase the supply of natural gas to accommodate current and expected future growth in both counties.

The new pipeline will tie into existing smaller diameter pipelines at a new regulator station that will strengthen the supply of natural gas to residential, commercial and industrial properties in the project benefit area. See the North Metro Natural Gas Pipeline Project benefit area.

The pipeline will allow Xcel Energy to continue to provide safe and reliable natural gas service our customers expect.
