From the Associated Press:
SANFORD, N.Y. — A 44-mile-long, $280 million natural gas pipeline under construction in central New York will carry natural gas from northern Pennsylvania to East Coast markets.
The Binghamton Press and Sun-Bulletin reports that the Bluestone Pipeline will connect with the Millennium Pipeline, a massive conduit that runs across central New York from Corning to Rockland County.
Bluestone spokesman Mike Armiak says the company hopes to have the project finished and gas flowing by the end of the year.
The new 20-inch-diameter Bluestone Pipeline will run from Pennsylvania through about nine miles of rural land in Broome County before meeting the Millennium Pipeline.
The company had to provide the Town of Sanford with a $1 million bond ensure any damage to town roads will be repaired.
