GREENFIELD — With the first phase of the Weston Village flood-relief project wrapping up, the Greenfield Board of Works Tuesday approved a pricey addition and started planning ahead for next year.
The Weston Village neighborhood, north of Main Street and west of Franklin Street, has been flooding during heavy rainfall since homes were built there in the 1950s. The improvement project, planned in several phases, extends a larger storm sewer line into the neighborhood to alleviate flooding problems.
This week, the first phase of the project is getting its finishing touches as new asphalt is placed over cut pavement.
City engineer Mike Fruth asked the board to approve a change order with contractor Midwest Mole that added $64,646 to the project, which is roughly 10 percent of the overall cost.
