Concerns over safety continue to plague Vermont Gas Systems and its Addison County pipeline, with the state questioning whether a licensed professional engineer signed off on the project.

Meanwhile, the company has postponed plans to expand a distribution line to serve the Addison County town of Bristol.

Thirty-seven Bristol residents sued the town of Bristol in August over the pipeline expansion. They argued that state law requires a public vote on whether town rights-of-way could be used for the project.
