The City of Westfield is pleased to announce we received a state grant to construct a shared used path on the south side of Court Street from Holcomb Street to Holland Ave. The path will replace the existing sidewalk with an 8 to 10-foot wide cement concrete path for bikes and pedestrians. Similar to what was constructed in Phase 1 of the Western Avenue project in 2020. This project along with Phase 2 of the Western Avenue project scheduled to start later this year will complete the bike connection between Westfield State University and the downtown. Construction on Court Street anticipated to begin in April 2021 with a completion date in May 2021. The work will occur within the City’s right-of-way with minimal impact to abutting properties.
Plans are available for review here: Court Street Shared Used Path Drawings
We encourage each abutter to contact the Engineering Department at (413) 572-6219 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further discussion or to schedule a meeting in the field.
