Crews have been replacing natural gas lines along State Road and Franklin Street.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – Crews have been digging up and laying pipe along State Road and Franklin Street over the past few weeks.

It's all been part of a project to upgrade natural gas lines in the city.

Christopher Farrell, Berkshire Gas corporate communications and government relations, said most of the projects should be complete within the month of September.

"These upgrade projects are undertaken to update our facilities to assure the integrity of our underground distribution system and to avoid any future road construction or disruption because of gas leaks," Farrell said.

Heavy construction can be found on Franklin Street, which Farrell said is being undertaken in conjunction with the city's Department of Public Works. He said it is an upgrade and replacement of natural gas mains and services from the intersection of North Eagle Street to the Clarksburg town line.

He said this project should be complete by Sept. 1.

State Road has also been undergoing heavy construction. That project started at the intersection at Roberts Drive and will go to the Williamstown line. Two miles of natural gas main are being upgraded to provide additional natural gas service to Williams College, said Farrell.

That project should be wrapped up during the last week of September.

Farrell said there will be another infrastructure upgrade on Ashland Street starting the week of Sept. 8. Some 1,700 feet of natural gas mains and services will be replaced and upgraded.

Farrell said this project should end by the week of Oct. 6.
