Status:  During the week of April 10th, 2017, Warner Brothers LLC will continue construction in the area of Fisher St, Harris St, Mt Pleasant St, Shumway St, and E Pleasant St.  Preparation for repaving will occur on Fisher St, Harris St, and Mt Pleasant St which will include:  Structure adjustment, reclaiming, fine grading, and compaction. On Shumway St, crews will begin setting catch basins, manholes, and water gate boxes.  At the intersections of E Pleasant and Chestnut St's, and E Pleasant and Hallock St's, construction of new accessible concrete sidewalk ramps will be done.

During this time roads will remain open, but travelers are advised to expect delays.  Please use caution, and pay attention to detail officers directing traffic.
 
Project Notes: The Public Works Commission presented a study done by StreetScan of the road conditions in Amherst to the Selectboard on 3/14/2016.  This study included the streets that are going to be paved during the 2016 season, as well as future improvements for road conditions throughout the town.

The presentation can be seen here, and the streets to be paved are in the table below.
