Springfield DPW Plans Improvements to Dangerous Intersection


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — The Springfield intersection where a school bus was involved in an accident last week could see some improvements.

Springfield DPW director Al Chwalek says his department is looking into adding a left turning lane to the intersection of Cottage Street and Berkshire Avenue, which would then give the intersection a dedicated right turn lane and left turn lane.

That project is in this year’s construction plan, but is contingent on the required funding coming through.

Many in that area had argued the intersection needs a traffic light, but Chwalek adds that addition is not in the works at this time.
