RT 23/41 Reconstruction Updates

This week, November 28,  on Main Street, drainage work will continue from roughly the Old Mill (53 Main St.), working east towards Great Barrington. This morning contractors are installing the one drainage structure near the Spirit Shoppe (71 Main St.) and will move up the road after that.

After dark, proceed cautiously as there may be difficult-to-see rough road patches.

Reconstruction Overview
MassDOT awarded Berkshire-based and family-owned J.H. Maxymillian Inc. the $7.77+ million contract. 

As of October 3, 2022, work has begun on the reconstruction project involving Main Street, So. Egremont. This fall, Maxymillian will focus on surveys, pole location marking, tree protection, and some drainage work. As part of the drainage work, turtle sweeps and protection measures will take place near the RT 41 intersection and the dam. MasWildlife is involved in the turtle sweep and protection actions providing weekly inspections throughout the reconstruction. Utility work (approx. 227 days worth) on some 45 poles may begin within 90 days and continue, if weather permits, through the winter. The bulk of the reconstruction will get underway in 2023.

MassDOT will make weekly reports to Town Hall on progress and detail the work to take place in the following week. The completion date is September 25, 2024.
