The Longmeadow Public Works Department is preparing to begin the installation of new sidewalks on Pleasantview Avenue. Detour Construction has been contracted to complete the work.  The work is scheduled to begin Wednesday, October 26th, weather permitting.

 In an effort to facilitate weekly refuse collection, residents are asked to have their refuse and recycling curbside by 7:00 am, especially during the time period that construction work is taking place on your street.

 During construction, you will notice various colored painted lines on your property. State laws require anyone who digs to notify utility companies before starting any underground project.  The painted lines you will see are the utility companies’ way of marking their underground lines.

 LAWN SPRINKLERS: In an effort to reduce damages to lawn irrigation systems, please mark irrigation lines and sprinkler heads located by the sidewalk and in the tree belt area by Tuesday, October 25th. Flags to mark irrigation lines and heads are available at the Department of Public Works. Should there be any damage to the Marked Irrigation; the Town’s Contractor will make the necessary repairs. The Contractor will make every effort to avoid your irrigation systems. Damage to unmarked irrigation systems will not be repaired by the Town.

 Additionally, we do realize that this work may cause some inconvenience to the residents, but hope you will bear with us as we improve our Town’s infrastructure.  If you have any questions, please contact the Longmeadow Public Works Engineering Department at (413) 567-3400.
