Construction on Taconic to Occur This Week in Great Barrington
GREAT BARRINGTON — Superintendent of the Department of Public Works Joe Sokul reports that two construction projects will be occurring this week. Detours and a road closure will go into effect, with minor traffic delays expected.
On Thursday, May 19, Taconic Avenue, between West Avenue and Brainard Avenue will be closed for the continued drainage improvement project. The Great Barrington Department of Public Works and Wilkinson Excavating will be involved in the work.
Earlier this week, Lane Construction completed the final paving of the Great Barrington section of Alford Road. On Friday, May 20, they will be working on smoothing the transition at the intersection of Alford Road and Division Street. This work is expected to take a few hours and police officers will be on site directing traffic.
Lane Construction will also finish driveway aprons and road edge work on Alford Road over the next two weeks, however this work will have minimal, if any, effect on traffic.
Residents should direct questions to the Department of Public Works, 413-528-0867.
