SOUTHWICK – As construction is underway, and the contractor working throughout the weekend, the Shurtleff Brook Bridge replacement on North Loomis Street is progressing.
According to Dick Grannells, Special Assistant to the DPW Director, the intent from the contractor is to re-open North Loomis Street this Friday, August 24. Paving for the road is expected to take place on Thursday.
The DPW closed North Loomis Street from July 30 to August 1, and then again beginning August 6 until the project was finished.
In December of 2017, the Select Board signed off on the $116,000 contract for Gill Engineering to do the engineering portion of the project. Brown also pointed out that another $325,000 will be used towards the project as that money was approved by the town at the last annual town meeting.
