Norwich lets there be light
Norwich — Electrician Matthew Woodall of Prime Electric was installing 7 Watt LED filament light bulbs Tuesday into a string being suspended over Main Street downtown.
Strings of lights in a zigzag design will replace the seasonal decorative lights annually put up by Norwich Public Utilities. The project, which will cost $30,000, is funded by $25,000 from the city, $3,000 from the Norwich Community Development Corp. and $2,000 from Global City Norwich.
The initial installation of lights run in four sections, two along Broadway between City Hall and the Wauregan, and two on Main Street between Courthouse Square and the parking garage. The section added Tuesday is between the Wauregan Hotel and buildings across Main Street between Broadway and City Landing.
