GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Department of Public Works broke ground Friday, starting repairs to the public parking lot between Chapman and Davis streets in downtown Greenfield.
The municipal lot is one of the larger ones in the city, located behind Wilson’s Department Store. The lot will be closed for the next two months to make repairs to the concrete and lights.
Sara Campbell, Engineering Supt. at the Greenfield DPW told 22News the repairs are needed. “The entire parking lot really needs to be redone. The pavement was long overdue. The concrete islands were chipped. The lighting fixtures as you can see are pretty rusted away. It’s just time for the parking lot to get a complete makeover.”
The construction will add 10 new parking spots to the lot, as well as street lights that use LED bulbs. The overall cost of the parking lot repairs is an estimated $300,000.
Now, if you need somewhere to park while repairs are being made, there are several lots in downtown for you to use. The largest lot is on Hope Street right behind the court house.
