When will this gas construction end?

"It's probably 2.5 feet," Alvarado tells us about the hole left by Columbia Gas. "It's probably 2.5 feet," Alvarado tells us about the hole left by Columbia Gas.

WEST TOLEDO (WTOL) - A gas leak forced them out of their house one month ago. That problem has been fixed, but now they have a new one.

"There was a gas leak, a main gas leak," said Nancy Alvarado. After days without heat, that was corrected.

A month later, there's still a problem. "You can't pull in the driveway," Alvarado said.

That's because the Columbia Gas crews that tore up the property never put it back, leaving a huge dip. Alvarado tells us, "It's probably 2.5 feet." She explains, "They cut the concrete in the driveway and left it, so we put a half of ton of gravel in it and it sunk."

Their Dodge Ram truck got stuck in the hole. Without much parking on the street, getting this fixed is high on Alvarado's list. Too bad we can't say the same for the gas company.

So they're now turning to us. "I know you can get the problem solved and get it fixed and I can use the driveway again."

Columbia Gas says it's very difficult to make repairs in the winter. After going out to the property and deeming it unacceptable, however, they've decided to make repairs immediately. Of course you can count on Mika to make sure it gets done.
