Williamstown Praises MassDOT for Roadwork – With Constructive Criticism
The Berkshire Eagle reports that the Williamstown Select Board wants to let the Massachusetts Department of Transportation know that it is appreciative for the state's efforts to rebuild Water Street, BUT that it is "disappointed" in the lengthy traffic disruptions the community experienced during construction.
Water Street serves as a secondary commercial corridor in town and as part of Route 43.
The letter, addressed to MassDOT District One Construction Engineer Mark Ringie, offers the input basically as constructive criticism, in hopes that it will be taken into consideration during any future projects in Williamstown.
Several businesses along Water Street felt the impact of construction.
In the spring, the last layer of asphalt will be installed and concrete sidewalks will replace the temporary asphalt sidewalks. The project will wrap up soon after that.
