COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - The state Public Service Board says Vermont Gas can continue its natural gas pipeline project in Addison County despite a 40 percent increase in the project’s costs.

The project, which is already under construction, would extend a natural gas pipeline 43 miles from Colchester to Middlebury. The board had been reconsidering the project after the cost estimate jumped from $86 million to $121 million.

The Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/1vRu6Vz) says the board, in its ruling Friday, called the cost increase substantial but said it was not a reason to reverse its determination that the project will promote the general good of the state.
