Crews have completed all the drainage, all 8" water main work, and 40% of the house services (from Rt. 41 up to Kenver). They have completed 50% of the electrical conduit work and about 30% of road reconstruction once paving is complete on Monday, September 11, 2023 (Rt. 41 to the Old Mill Restaurant).
Crews plan to complete the water services and electrical conduit work this September and into October. Once the water services are complete, crews can tie in the new water main at the Great Barrington town line, Creamery Rd., and Sheffield Rd. Then discontinue the old water main.
October through December, construction will involve installing curbing and sidewalks from Rt. 41 to Baldwin Hill Rd - all the curbing available for 2023. Driveway aprons at houses and businesses from Rt. 41 to the Old Mill will be paved. Temporary line painting before winter will happen sometime in late October or early November.
December through March will be a winter shutdown.
