Congamond Road Improvements
MassDOT is funding the reconstruction of Congamond Road. This project will includes paving, lane widening with bicycle lanes, new sidewalk and pedestrian crossings, new stormwater management system, re-grading, and general safety improvements to comply with State and Federal requirements. The estimated construction cost is $4.1m. A. Pereira Construction of Ludlow, MA was awarded the construction contract. Construction commenced in Spring of 2018 and has stopped for the year. Construction will resume in the Spring and likely continue through Summer 2019.
College Highway Water System Improvements
This project includes replacing the existing water main on College Highway from Tannery Road to the Springfield Water & Sewer Commission’s transmission main in Westfield. In addition, the existing pump station on College Highway will be moved to a new location close to the Westfield Town Line off Jarry Drive. This relocation will allow the Town to 1) provide water from our own sources to customers north of the existing pump station, and 2) upgrade the new pump station with an on-site treatment system that is required due to planned operational changes at Springfield Water & Sewer Commission. The project is currently under design. Construction is anticipated to start in Spring 2019.
