Public Hearing Held on Congamond Road Reconstruction Project in Southwick

Southwick Public HearingSOUTHWICK, Mass. (WGGB) — A public hearing was held tonight in Southwick for a state project on Congamond Road.

Right now the road varies in width and on some portions of the road the shoulder is so deteriorated it cannot be used.

Wednesday night residents expressed their concerns about the project to the people who will be handling it.

“We brought a few issues to the table, one being the sidewalk. Pedestrian safety being a big one. Safety of the residents being as they access their property, so there’s a lot of concern about speeding, accidents, and just people being able to enjoy the road themselves,” says project manager, David Loring who’s with Tighe & Bond Inc. in Westfield.

The proposed project would improve the one-point-two miles of Congamond Road from College Highway to the Connecticut boarder.

The road would not be closed entirely at any point during the project but there would be some lane closures.
