State Representative Jonathan Dever (R-Madeira) today reiterated his serious concerns with Duke Energy’s Central Corridor Gas Pipeline Extension Project in the 28th Ohio House District.

Rep. Dever cited reactions from constituents in the district who continue to voice their hesitations and concerns regarding the safety and environmental impact of the project, which is proposed to run through various residential neighborhoods in the area.

“Although this project has been planned with the best of intentions, there is a genuine concern for the safety of human life,” Rep. Dever said. “It is my hope that we can continue to have an open and transparent conversation between residents, local officials and Duke Energy to come to a solution that works for everyone. I strongly encourage Duke Energy to halt any future action on the project until these concerns are addressed.”

Rep. Dever has been working in coordination with Duke Energy, the Ohio Power Siting Board and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to ensure that questions from constituents are answered and a solution that is both safe and economically beneficial can be found.

Residents interested in voicing their opinions on the issue can submit comments to the Ohio Power Siting Board at, using Case No. 16-0253-GA-BTX.

“I encourage local residents to continue to provide feedback on this issue,” Rep. Dever said. “Together, we can address these concerns and find a solution that works for everyone involved.”
