After about a month and a half of construction on both a new sidewalk project and the laying of new pipe, Summer St. will fully reopen on Friday according to Lanesborough DPW Director, Charlie Durfee.


The $320,000 pipe replacement is complete. The heavily traveled Summer St. goes from Rte. 7 to Old State Rd.

We also just completed a $354,000 sidewalk project as well from Rte.7 to the elementary school. We ripped the old sidewalk out, put the new one in, plus the $320,000 culvert replacement due to the old one collapsing near the bottom of Summer St. 


Maxymillian did both projects. The road, in sections, has been closed for the last month and a half and now will reopen first thing on Friday morning. -Durfee
