DETROIT (AP) - DTE Energy Co. says $1.4 billion in investment is planned in Michigan natural gas pipeline infrastructure over the next five years.
The Detroit-based utility says Wednesday investments by DTE Gas will help maintain the natural gas system's safety and reliability while keeping prices affordable.
Plans call for modernizing cast iron and steel main pipelines with newer, more-durable material. New service lines to homes and businesses will be installed. Crews this year are on track to replace more than 100 miles of gas main lines, up from 80 miles in 2015.
