Shutesbury Road Culvert Enhancement Project Update

Shutesbury Road Culvert Enhancement Project Update

September 19, 2022

The culvert enhancement project on Shutesbury Road between the Number Six and Old Mountain Road intersections is now scheduled for the long weekend of October 7 through 10th, 2022. The road will be closed beginning on Friday afternoon, October 7th and reopened for the Tuesday morning commute on October 11th.

The purpose of this project is to replace the current corroding and poorly embedded culvert with a buried natural streambed bottom culvert that will open the connection along the stream for fish and wildlife, help ensure the protection of an environmentally sensitive area, and improve the safety of Shutesbury road.

Discussion about the project and public comments about it will be welcomed during the September 27th and October 11th Selectboard meetings at 7:30 pm. Selectboard meetings take place in person and remotely. A remote link is available off the selectboard calendar of the town website. /d/0/?cid=56

Public comments also are welcome at project work meetings, the first of which will be on September 22nd at 10:00 am at the town hall. Additional meetings will be scheduled at that meeting and will be announced.

The Town redesign of the Shutesbury and Cushman Road intersection at the bottom of the hill will no longer occur at the same time as this project, but at another time.

Anyone interested in contacting the Town for more information about the project can reach out to Margie McGinnis, Administrator at 413-548-9699 or townadministrator or Matt Boucher, Highway Superintendent at 413-548-9400 or

This project is funded by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts through the

Municipal Vulnerability Program (MVP) and by the Town of Leverett.
