NORWICH — New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG) has begun a gas line replacement project that will reduce accessibility to parts of Silver Street over the coming weeks.
"There's a number of streets this year, so they just started with Silver Street," said City of Norwich Mayor Brian Doliver. "NYSEG has a number of years they have to get things upgraded, the gas lines up to snuff. So the state's gotten after them to make sure they upgrade their gas lines."
According to the City of Norwich Police Department, the project was started on the corner of East Main Street and Silver Street, and will "complete its work block by block."
A list of streets involved or a timeline for completion of the project was not available, but the police department said it will "take several weeks to complete."
