Work In Your Neighborhood
Florida City Gas’ investments in natural gas infrastructure help to support the continued economic development of communities in Florida. In addition to bringing efficient and affordable natural gas to your community, our infrastructure projects also help create jobs. More importantly, families and business owners in our community have ready access to America’s most abundant, environmentally-friendly fuel today and tomorrow. During all of our construction projects, safety is our first priority and great care is taken to minimize inconvenience to property owners in the project areas.
Safety, Access, and Facility Enhancement (SAFE Program)
SAFE is a ten-year Safety, Access, and Facility Enhancement program which allows for the replacement and relocation of approximately 250 miles of natural gas pipeline across south Florida. It is an investment in the natural gas distribution system serving homes and businesses. Replacing and relocating pipe with newer, technologically advanced plastic pipe with a longer useful life will help ensure an even safer and more reliable natural gas pipeline system.
As part of the approved program, the average residential customer may have noticed an increase of $0.82 on his or her bill. Please note that the bill increase is carefully regulated and aligns with investments made to ensure improvements to our system. These improvements allow Florida City Gas to continue its commitment of delivering safe, reliable safe natural gas to its customers.

Barrier Islands Project
Florida City Gas will install a new 8-inch steel main along N. Atlantic Ave and State Highway A1A, from Port Canaveral to State Road 520. The pipeline project is expected to improve the reliability of natural gas service to businesses and residents of the Barrier Island communities during periods of high demand.
N. Atlantic Avenue will be repaved following the completion of a separate streetscape project to provide the Cape Canaveral community with a beautiful downtown business district. The entire project is slated to be completed by the end of the year.
