PITTSFIELD — Starting Monday, Streetscape contractor Maxymillian will be grading sidewalks for the sidewalk subcontractor from Carson Place to Maplewood Avenue. Construction work will start at 7 a.m.
Small precast features such as bollards will be installed in front of St. Joseph's Church. A radius seat wall is also scheduled to be installed at the north corner of Maplewood Avenue and North Street.
Maxymillian will have a crew continuing excavation of sidewalks on the east side of North Street. The crew will start working on the area around the Greystone Building beginning on Monday. Following the excavation work, conduit work will take place from the parking lot on the south side of the Greystone building to Maplewood Avenue.
Maxymillian will also have a crew moving throughout the construction zone working in spot locations in the roadway to lower the existing structures ahead of the road milling scheduled to take place later this month.
The curbing and sidewalk subcontractor, Varandas Construction, will continue installing granite curbing on the east side of North Street from Carson Place to Maplewood Avenue.

Parking and pedestrian traffic may be disrupted by this work but access to storefronts will be maintained.
Verizon has identified a manhole in front of the Ralph Froio Senior Center that will need to be repaired. Dodge Construction will be performing that work for most of the week.
Pedestrian traffic will be guided by pedestrian guardrails and drums.
Vehicular traffic will be down to one lane in both directions. Parking in some areas will be affected. Vehicles will be guided with signs, cones and drums.
