On August 27, 2020, the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) approved plans for Columbia Gas Ohio to move forward with the construction of the Marysville Connector project. This project will bring natural gas from the eastern side of Franklin County to Union County to support the growing needs of Marysville and surrounding communities.

This approval is the culmination of tireless work between the company, local elected officials and community leaders. This infrastructure project will bring additional resources to Union county, Marysville and surrounding communities as expected growth and development continues.

Columbia Gas has designed the Marysville Connector to meet Union County’s future natural gas needs. The project accounts for additional capacity in the fastest-growing portion of Union County and the U.S. Route 33 Smart Corridor. Construction on the Marysville Connector project is planned to begin in early 2022.

In addition to the Marysville Connector, Columbia is developing another significant development project called the Northern Loop. The Application for approval of this project by the OPSB will likely be filed this month.
