Downtown Construction Commences

Jersey barriers have sprouted on Kendrick Park

The north end of downtown will get a major cosmetic improvement this summer with the undergrounding of ugly utility poles and lines all along the eastern side of Kendrick Park.

Last year the state awarded us a $1.5 million MassWorks grant to cover the costs of the infrastructure improvements.

The town is also moving ahead next year with a roundabout at the East Pleasant/Triangle Street intersection which is a main gateway to UMass, our number one employer.

One of the provisions of the $1.5 million MassWorks grant was for the town to do something to improve that intersection.

Intersection of Triangle and East Pleasant Streets will go the way of roundabout

UMassTransit should run their southbound buses WEST of Kendrick Park and put in a temporary bus stop near McClellan and N. Pleasant.
