Last Updated: June 9, 2017
 Current Status:   
As of June 9th, 2017
  • Eversource Energy has completed removing all overhead electric utility wires in the Triangle and East Pleasant St area.
  • Comcast and Verizon will continue making preparations to remove their respective overhead utility wires and the remaining poles. 
  • Temporary traffic signals have been installed at the intersection of Triangle St and North Pleasant St in preparation for the partial closure of the Triangle and East Pleasant St Intersection. 
  • Construction materials will continue to be delivered to the north end of Kendrick Park. 
  • We anticipate Warner Brothers will move in and begin the road work and the intersection closure within the next few weeks, pending the complete removal of all overhead utilities.
Project Scope:  This project will improve the intersection function during peak traffic times.

Project History:  At the February 2016 Public Works Commission meeting a design was proposed, considered, and with some slight amendments made, a motion was moved in its favor (Passed 5-0-0).  On March 14th, 2016, the plan concept was approved by the Selectboard at their meeting.
