SPRINGDALE CORRIDOR-MAIN ST IMPROVEMENT PROJECT SEEKS INPUT
The City of Holyoke is in partnership with Nitsch Engineering to design the Springdale Corridor-Main Street Project. This project (formerly announced as the CT River Pathway) will provide a safe and innovative shared-used path for residents and visitors by connecting Route 5 to Springdale Park. This project complements the ongoing plan for the Rehabilitation of Route 5 from MassDOT, project number 604209, by expanding on the shared-used pathway planned on the eastern side of Main Street. This project will be a fundamental foundation for a network of trails that will enhance the experiences and destinations for all, including access to recreational spaces and ongoing place-making efforts on Main Street.
“It is exciting to be addressing this key entry into the city and to ensure it is welcoming and utilized to its best use. I want to thank Cynthia Espinosa for her work on this project and the team at Nitsch Engineering. We look forward to engaging with the residents and businesses along this corridor to put the best plan forward for improvements.” said Aaron Vega, new Director of the Office of Planning and Economic Development.
We are inviting residents and businesses along the project corridor to meet us for the whole walk or just a portion, at the locations below, to walk along the Springdale Corridor – Main Street to give feedback, ask questions, and learn more about ways to get engaged in the design for the Springdale Corridor – Main Street Improvements Project. The project proposes to improve accessibility and mobility along the corridor. We welcome all input to develop a design that meets the needs of the community.
