Going, going, gone …

The decrepit stairs leading to the top of the Hadley Overpass were torn down on Monday, headed for the scrap pile. There are no plans to replace the shortcut to the top, which has been closed for safety reasons for years.

The shortcut between American Legion Drive and City Hall was blocked off by fencing. It wasn’t clear Monday whether that was for the removal of the stairs or if it’s long term. We’ll find out as soon as possible.

A poster last week asked a great question about the use of police details during construction.

Yes, the governor has ordered MassHighway to review the use of police details as a way to cut costs. But reading the rules, it appears civilian flaggers will be used in specific situations. I haven’t gotten a response back from MassHighway but we’re working on it. North Adams Police were on the scene over the past week.
