Investing in Illinois - Nicor Gas Enhancements

September 13, 2023
nicor news item investing in illinois The Village has been notified that Nicor will begin their multi-year Natural Gas Line Improvement Project beginning Tuesday, September 19th. For complete information about this project, addresses affected, and Nicor contact information, see Nicor's Project Flyer.

This Nicor project includes two different components that may impact affected residents including:

  • Gas Main Improvements
    This project will impact roadways and parkways of the affected areas, as underground natural gas mains will be improved. Nicor Gas, or one of its contractors, will restore landscaping and paving impacted by our construction to the condition in which we found it. Temporary restoration of some areas may be necessary until permanent restoration can be completed.  

  • Gas Meter Relocation
    This project will also require any gas meters currently located inside of resident homes to be moved to an external location. Affected residences are listed on the Nicor Project Flyer. While this will be an ongoing project, only a small population or Arlington Heights residents will be impacted.

Residents located in the project area will receive a notice in the mail with additional information regarding construction. For project related questions, residents can visit or reach out to the Nicor project manager directly, by emailing
