Closing Wendell Rd. Mon. - Fri., 9/24 - 9/28 between 711 Wendell and the Laurels. The highway department is installing a new culvert across Wendell Rd. at South Brook. The work will take a week to complete. The road will be closed to through traffic. The school bus will turn around at the Laurels.
Yesterday, 8/30/18, sections of Leverett Rd. were prepared for paving. The roadway is rougher than normal. The old top layer was ground down. The black top will be applied in about two weeks from now. The highway dept. will notify the public of the exact date when it is verified.
The Shutesbury Highway Department is staffed by a full-time Highway Superintendent, two full-time equipment operators/truck drivers, and one seasonal part-time truck driver. The Department is responsible for all road maintenance, snow removal, paving, and improvements of town roads.
Announcements will be made for road closing a week ahead of time through the Police Department. Partial lane closings will be announced 2 to 3 days ahead of time. Paving contractors may change dates because of weather conditions, so we will notify the public of changes.
