EGREMONT — The town’s Select Board met with representatives from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation this week to discuss a proposal for major road renovations along State Routes 23 and 41.
During a morning meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at the Egremont Free Library, Select Board members, Chairperson George McGurn and Lucinda Fenn-Vermeulen discussed plans for the proposed project with Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Project Development Engineer Mark Moore and MassDOT Project Manager Tom Currier.
Under the current proposal, the state would fund the installation of crosswalks in the town across from Mom’s Country Cafe and the library, while also closing gaps in the town’s network of sidewalks. The final cost of the project is still to be determined, but the road work will be fully funded by the state, said McGurn.
