LINCOLN, ME, Aug. 21, 2014 (Bangor Daily News) -Traffic along the often-congested West Broadway should return to normal in about two weeks, when pavers and pipeline installers finish Phase One of a $7.5 million natural gas installation in early September, officials said Wednesday.

Nearly a mile of the 3½-mile pipe installation through Lincoln remains to be finished, with paving over the new pipelines to follow, said Doug McDougal, project manager for Sullivan and Merritt Constructors Inc.

Two pipelines are being installed. One is a steel, high-pressure line that will deliver natural gas from the pipeline connection near Interstate 95 to Lincoln Paper and Tissue LLC and a natural gas substation near the paper manufacturer. The other is a 4-inch plastic line that will deliver lower-pressure gas to the businesses and residences along West Broadway, McDougal said.
