The next phase of roadway reconstruction is scheduled to begin next week which includes the section of Little River Road from Shaker Road heading east towards Pontoosic Road. The contractor, Ludlow Construction anticipates starting the road construction on Monday August 7th.
The process of reconstruction will be the same as it was on Shaker Road which includes crushing of the existing pavement and blending it with the existing gravel below. Following crushing of the asphalt the contractor will regrade the material to prepare the road for paving. This regrading work is expected to take 2 to 3 weeks and during this time the road will be gravel with impacts to travel conditions.
The base course layers of paving for this phase are scheduled for the week of August 28th with curb and sidewalk work to follow.
The final phase of road construction includes the section Little River Road from Shaker Road to just south of Tow Path Lane. This work is scheduled to start in September with the work continuing into October.
Your continued patience from both residents and commuters is greatly appreciated. We will continue to provide updates as they are available. Further inquiries may be directed to the City of Westfield Engineering Department, (413) 572-6219.
