US 385 Holyoke North Resurfacing

About the Project:

This is an infrastructure and accessibility upgrade project along US Highway 385 north of Holyoke. The main scope of work includes rehabilitating the pavement and widening shoulders along a ten-mile stretch of US 385. Other work includes subbase excavation, milling, base course, asphalt overlay, culvert extensions, signage, striping, and installing new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant curb ramps along US 385 and US 6 within the city limits. The new curb ramps will be sloped for easier access, finished with a slip resistant surface, and will include other features to meet ADA guidelines.

This state and federally funded project is part of CDOT’s 10-year plan to restore this section of two-lane highway to optimal condition and add much-needed curb ramps at various intersections in downtown Holyoke to improve accessibility for all pedestrians.

Project Benefits:

  • Restore a ten-mile stretch of two-lane highway to optimal driving condition
  • Widen shoulders and add guardrail and signage to improve driver safety
  • Install ADA curb ramps to enhance accessibility for all pedestrians

Work Schedule:
