Repaving project moving along in Chapman and Davis municipal lot
GREENFIELD — The repaving project in the municipal lot on Chapman and Davis streets is moving along as planned, according to town officials.
The lot will be closed to the public most likely through June while the lot is repaved and new sidewalks are built. Landscaping will also be done.
Sara Campbell, the town’s engineering superintendent, said great progress is being made.
“We’re stabilizing a patch of clay on the north end with geotextile fabric,” she said. “The south end is being compacted.”
The town also plans to install LED lighting throughout the lot, said Campbell.
The $300,000 project began in late April and is expected to take about two months to complete.
C.D. Davenport of Greenfield is doing the work.
Campbell said the new alignment of the lot will result in an increase of 10 parking spaces, bringing the total in the lot to 204 spaces.
Trees will be planted to add shade and a landscaped island midway in the lot will receive runoff and filter storm water.
The six kiosks removed from the Chapman and Davis streets municipal parking lot will be reinstalled in the lot when work is completed. An electric car charging station that was also removed will be reinstalled.
The town is borrowing the money for the project and plans to use parking revenue and parking fines to pay it back, according to town officials.
