Work is progressing on the new Clarke-Mobile Counties Gas District’s administrative building on Ochre Avenue in Jackson. Hub Construction of Jackson is constructing the 10,000 square foot building that is costing just over $1.5 million. Tuesday workers were setting roof trusses in place that were built by Liberty Building Products of Grove Hill. Once the new building is completed, the current office building will be demolished and the portion of Ochre Avenue running between the old and new buildings will be closed and the area incorporated into new landscaping and parking. The new structure will include a large showroom for gas appliances, offices, board room, dispatch area and a drive-through facility for customers to pay their bills. Clarke-Mobile Counties Gas is a natural gas utility owned by the municipal governments of Jackson, Grove Hill and Thomasville.
