BEDFORD (WSLS 10) -  Leaders in Bedford celebrated the completion of a phase of a water line project on Thursday afternoon.

They held a ceremonial valve turning at the town's Smith Street connection. That connection will allow water to run from Smith Mountain Lake to the Town of Bedford.

Lines are still being in installed along Route 460 to New London.

The Bedford Regional Water Authority hopes the project will be complete by May.
