RT 23/41 Reconstruction Updates
December 6, 2022. Work will continue on Main Street, So. Egremont (Rt. 23), with drainage installation from roughly the Old Mill (53 Main St.) working towards the border with Great Barrington. However, due to the ledge/rock just under the pavement, progress will be slower than usual due to pre-drilling locations for new structures and pipe. A tree crew is operating at Rt. 41/Undermountain Road, clearing the area for the new infiltration system. When done, the crew will move to the trees that need to be trimmed/removed for the new utility poles.
The last planned day of drainage work will be December 16, 2022, and on that day, crews will pave all gravel trenches and button everything up for the winter. They will plan on working on the infiltration area after that but will be off the road. Tree work will likely continue through the holidays, and utility companies may start setting new poles in January.
All work is weather dependent. Further updates will be as needed.
MassDOT awarded Berkshire-based and family-owned J.H. Maxymillian Inc. the $7.77+ million contract.
As of October 3, 2022, work has begun on the reconstruction project involving Main Street, So. Egremont. This fall, Maxymillian will focus on surveys, pole location marking, tree protection, and some drainage work. As part of the drainage work, turtle sweeps and protection measures will take place near the RT 41 intersection and the dam. MasWildlife is involved in the turtle sweep and protection actions providing weekly inspections throughout the reconstruction. Utility work (approx. 227 days worth) on some 45 poles may begin within 90 days and continue, if weather permits, through the winter. The bulk of the reconstruction will get underway in 2023.
MassDOT will make weekly reports to Town Hall on progress and detail the work to take place in the following week. The completion date is September 25, 2024.
