LENOX — Residents along five town streets will see renovated sidewalks come springtime when a town-funded infrastructure project commences.
Sidewalks along Cliffwood, Housatonic, Hubbard, Tucker and Walker streets will either be replaced or repaired under the planned scope of the work. The town hired Pittsfield-based civil engineering firm Foresight Land Services to design sidewalk repairs in Lenox and to compile the bid package. The bid for the project was awarded to Morais Concrete Service of Springfield in the amount of $241,595.
According to a letter to residents from Lenox Superintendent of Public Works William Gop, the “upgrades are intended to not only fix some drainage and grading issues but make our sidewalks Americans with Disabilities Act compliant allowing for the ability of all residents to enjoy our town safely.”
The repair work is expected to begin in March, weather permitting, and finish no later than June, according to Maureen Jacoby of Foresight Land Services.
When the project begins this spring, 1,250 feet of sidewalks between 14 and 24 Tucker St. will be realigned to the road’s edge in order to resolve grading and drainage issues. On a 40-foot piece of sidewalk at 34 Walker St., crews from Morais Concrete will excavate the existing sidewalk and install a new concrete walking surface.
