MassDOT crews this week are milling and resurfacing State Road/Routes 7 and 23 in Great Barrington. The $500,000 project will resurface the roadway from Brown Bridge to Belcher Square, a distance of approximately one-half mile.
Work is taking place between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. The work involves milling the roadway surface the remainder of this week. New pavement will be put down starting the end of next week and the following week, followed by line striping and pavement markings.
The work is expected to be complete by Friday, June 20. The project work schedule as always could be subject to change because of rain.
Drivers traveling through the work zone are encouraged to reduce their speeds and use caution when traveling through this area. Two-way travel will be maintained at all times, but because of reduced lane widths, some delays should be expected.
