Current Construction Schedule

|Columba Street||Full depth reconstruction of Columba Street from Laurel Street to Ward Street. Water main replacement has been completed, as well as the final pavement overlay. Punch list items and line striping are expected to be wrapped up by the end of the year.|
This project includes improvements to the existing crosswalks along the northerly section of Chicopee St (north of the "Y", the northerly Chicopee St/Meadow St intersection). These locations include Charbonneau Terrace / Bolduc Lane, Leslie Street and Whitman Street. The improvements at each of these locations include a new median/refuge island, accessible ramps with detectable warning panels, new signage, continental crosswalk striping (longitudinal bars), and RRFBs (Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons - pedestrian actuated).
Existing crosswalks on Chicopee Street at Sarah Jane Park and Florence Street will be upgraded with RRFBs and continental crosswalk striping. Additional existing crosswalks along Chicopee Street and Meadow Street will be upgraded with continental crosswalk striping and in some locations, new signage.
A new crosswalk on Broadway north of Thornwood St includes accessible ramps with detectable warning strips, new signage, continental crosswalk striping, and RRFBs. New crosswalks on Broadway at Pine Street / Alvord Avenue and East Street near 39 East Street are also included in the project.
The work at the locations north of "The Y" on Chicopee Street is scheduled to start the week of August 7th.
