STREET WORK — Central Hudson is replacing gas lines in Beacon along Verplanck Avenue (shown here) and portions of Dewindt Street, including South Cedar, South Chestnut and Henry streets. The Verplanck work is expected to be completed by early November and the Dewindt project by the end of September. A gas main replacement along Main Street between Schenck and South Avenue should be finished by early October. The projects are a part of a years-long, regional initiative by the utility to address aging infrastructure. (Photo by Jeff Simms)
