GLENS FALLS — Those who use the Warren County Bikeway should expect portions of the path in Glens Falls to be closed for several weeks later this year because of utility work along the trail.
National Grid plans to run a 12-inch natural gas line along a several-block section of the county bikeway, which would close parts of the path for construction later this year. It is part of a project that will run a new gas line from Mohican Street to Lexington Avenue to expand capacity and improve gas service in the area, said Nathan Stone, a spokesman for National Grid.
A portion of the new line, from Cooper Street to Lexington, will be buried along the county-owned bike path.
“It’s a major project,” said Tim Benway, the county’s director of parks and recreation. “Portions of the bike path will be closed for six to eight weeks.”
Detours will be set up as the work progresses, Benway said.
