Construction is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2016 and is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.

The second award is for a new natural gas pipeline to a power plant in southern Pennsylvania for an independent power producer. The project consists of 3.7 miles of 24-inch diameter natural gas pipeline and will give an existing coal-fired plant the option to burn natural gas.
