Downtown Norwich gas line construction to begin Monday

Norwich – Construction to replace the natural gas lines on Main Street in downtown will begin Monday and could cause traffic delays, Norwich Public Utilities announced.

NPU has contracted with Northern Gas Line Constructors, Inc. to replace the gas service lines. The work is a continuation of last year's project and is expected to take six weeks.

Road closures are not anticipated, however, drivers may experience traffic delays, NPU officials said. Drivers should proceed with caution when passing work zones. Additionally, ‘No Parking’ signs may be posted in the construction area.

“This work is necessary to ensure the integrity and safety of our natural gas distribution system,” Chris LaRose, Operations Division manager. “Our goal is to complete this work with the least amount of disruption to downtown businesses and traffic flow.”

Anyone with concerns or questions about this project can contact Bill Dewey, construction foreman at (860) 823-4150, or send an email to
