The Avenue A Streetscape Improvement Project will restore an ADA compliant, pedestrian-oriented streetscape in the Turners Falls village center. Located within an Environmental Justice Area, Avenue A is Montague’s retail, dining, and entertainment center, and a state-designated Cultural District. This bid ready project completes the north end of the Avenue A Streetscape, replacing aged and heaving brick sidewalks with a new brick and cement concourse designed to enhance longevity and accessibility. Replacing aged traffic signals and the addition of pedestrian-scale lighting will enhance the safety, accessibility, visual appeal and walkability of the village center, consistent with the Town’s Livability, COVID “Rapid Recovery” and ADA Transition plans.
