It's likely the pipe is mostly corroded shut, so just replacing the line would help. However, it's also likely the meter is 5/8", so the value of the 1" pipe would be minimized. While you're doing it, consider a new 1" meter. $2500 is quite excessive. Look into doing the trench yourself and then shop for someone to do the pipe and meter.
