Central Hudson has begun an extensive project in New Windsor’s Ducktown neighborhood to replace natural gas mains. The project is slated to take about four months to complete, and will wrap up in mid-October.
The company is switching out about 8,445 feet of main and service lines that run to approximately 125 homes. The mains were installed in the 1930s and 1940s, and the old pipelines are “at, or near, the end of their useful life,” John Maserjian, Central Hudson spokesperson, said in an email response to questions.
“Crews and flaggers will manage traffic, and we do not anticipate any major delays,” Maserjian said.
Areas that will be impacted include: Clancy, Bradford, Goodman, Foley, Blanche, Myrtle, Merline, Lawrence, Melrose and Cedar avenues.
