NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Construction of a controversial natural gas pipeline is getting underway, even as dozens of Davidson County homeowners are still fighting the company in court.

Piedmont Natural Gas plans to build a pipeline covering 14.5 miles between Antioch and the Chickering Road area, but the route cuts through a lot of private property and even crosses the Radnor Lake Natural Area.

Piedmont officials said one third of the pipeline will not disturb the surface of the ground; instead, workers will dig a trench beneath the surface.

About two dozen homeowners still have not resolved settlements with Piedmont for the amount to be paid in easement of their property. The company said a judge has already granted it approval to use those homeowners' properties.

"Our commitment to everybody whose property we're crossing is to put that property back the way it was or better, and that's just something we do with the pipelines we install, design, build, operate and maintain," said Piedmont spokesman David Trusty.

Piedmont officials said work on the pipeline is expected to continue for another six to eight months.
