Pine Street is east/west connector to North Amherst center and Cushman Village
Thanksgiving will be especially thankful this year for those of you who live in North Amherst and the many of you who travel through there routinely: Pine Street, the expensive forever project, may now be completed this year rather than next spring.
Pedestrian crosswalk with lights may be completed this year
The sidewalk and crosswalk contiguous with Simple Gifts Farms and pretty much dead center in the busy roadway was going to be delayed due to crops in the field.
But this week the project rolled ahead and DPW Chief Guilford Mooring reports, "a rush of activity to be done with Pine Street so the sidewalk at the farm will probably be paved next week, as long as the rain holds off."

Sidewalk switches sides due to utility poles in the way (too expensive to move)
