Barre Common Groundbreaking, July 28, 2015MassDOT Highway Administrator Thomas J. Tinlin joined elected officials to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Barre Town Common Improvements Project. Located in the center of Barre, at the junction of Routes 122, 32, and 62, the Barre Town Common Improvement Project will redesign the five intersections where town roads meet at Route 122 and Route 32.

“The Barre Town Common Improvements Project has been a long time coming and it is exciting to celebrate such an important project milestone today,” said Tinlin. “MassDOT was pleased to give the notice to proceed to earlier this month to get work underway so that work to improve the access and safety for cars and pedestrians traveling through the area could begin.

The project will improve traffic and pedestrian access and safety, and will reconstruct the immediate approaches to Summer Street at James Street, South Street, Common Street, and Park Street in Barre. Improvements will include roadway resurfacing, curbing and edging installations, sidewalk and wheelchair ramp construction, signing and pavement marking installation, and other associated work.

Funded with federal and state dollars, the expected completion is set for August of 2017.

The contractor, Baltazar Contractors, Inc., is responsible for the maintenance of traffic during construction, the maintenance of vehicular and pedestrian access to abutting properties, and coordination of all proposed activities with other contractors and utilities working on the project.
