Village Intersection Project

To Provide additional clarity as the project progresses here is a synopsis and depiction of the final project.

COLRAIN- INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS @ MAIN ROAD, JACKSONVILLE ROAD (ROUTE 112) & GREENFIELD ROAD

The project proposes to reconstruct this three-legged unsignalized intersection to improve traffic flow and sight distance, and improve pedestrian accommodation in the Colrain village center. Proposed work includes reconstructing the intersection and its approaches (approx. 0.1 mile north and south, and 0.5 mile west to the town offices) and creating an accessible network of sidewalks, ramps, and crosswalks to link popular village center locations. The project will include approx. 0.5 mile of new sidewalk, with landscaping and "streetscape” elements to promote pedestrian mobility in the village. As a result of a road safety audit done concurrent with project design, the project will also include other Intersection Improvements and Related Work (including Overhead Warning Signs) along a Section of Route 112 (Main/Jacksonville Roads) and Greenfield Road. Funding for this project was obtained through the Federal Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) - $1,819,756 with the Town contributing approximately $350,00 of it's Chapter 90 allocation for design/engineering and right-of-way costs. The project was designed and engineered by the engineering firm of Weston and Sampson. A picture of the proposed project is attached below.
