PITTSFIELD, Mass. – Starting the week of June 20, Streetscape contractor, Maxymillian, will be grading sidewalks for the sidewalk subcontractor from Eagle to Melville streets. A second Maxymillian crew will work on demolishing and rebuilding the basement roof at 338-348 North Street.
Construction work is expected to start at 7 a.m.
Around mid-week Maxymillian will also be installing granite seat walls in front of St Joseph’s Church and the Senior Center.
The curbing and sidewalk subcontractor, Varandas Construction, will complete the majority of their sidewalk work on the west side of North Street early in the week. New curbing and planters will continue to be installed on the east side of North Street from Eagle to Melville streets. There is a possibility that late in the week new sidewalks will begin to be installed starting at Eagle Street and moving north on the east side of North Street. Parking and pedestrian traffic may be disrupted by this work but access to storefronts will be maintained.
Berkshire Gas and JS Rae are nearing completion of their gas line work. Once this work is complete they will be patching the remaining trenches. This work may cause some disruptions to vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
Pedestrian traffic will continue to be guided by pedestrian guardrails.
Vehicular traffic will be down to one lane in both directions. Parking in some areas will be affected by this work. Vehicles will be guided with signs, cones, and drums allowing traffic to travel safely in the downtown area.
