A Colorado Springs Utilities project to replace a natural gas line is proceeding south along the southbound lane of South 26th Street.
       Also including the replacement of service lines to adjoining properties, the work between Bott Avenue and Hagerman Street will continue into early March, according to Utilities spokesperson Steve Berry.
       There is some effect on traffic, with a flagman at either end, alternating northbound and southbound vehicles into a single lane past the roughly 100-foot-long work area.
       The project was scheduled in cooperation with plans by City Streets to pave 26th Street between Highway 24 and Lower Gold Camp Road later this year, funded by the road improvement tax approved by voters last November.
       “We're trying to get it in before the city overlay,” Berry said of the gas-line replacement work.
