The Union Street Reconstruction project was awarded to Ludlow Construction on April 27, 2022 by MassDOT. A "Notice to Proceed" with construction activities was issued to Ludlow Construction on May 17, 2022. They are required to complete the project by October 3, 2025. MassDOT personnel will be responsible for daily project management once work commences.
Ludlow Construction is progressing on project submittals, and utility agreements are being implemented. This summer, test pits for utility location confirmation are planned to allow for electric and gas relocations to begin later this summer and fall. Substantial construction activities could be underway this fall, provided no further supply chain or contractor delays exist.
The City of Easthampton will provide another project update in two weeks once the approved DOT schedule is received.
