|   City News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Department of Public Works Director (DPW) Chris Cignoli joined with City Councilors Attorney Michael Fenton and Attorney Sean Curran, Lamari Jackson from State Senator Adam Gomez’s Office, DPW Civil Engineer Vinnie Derose, and Cathy Mossi President of the Hungry Hill Neighborhood Council and Kathy Brown, President of the East Springfield Neighborhood Council to highlight the paving of Liberty Street.

Mayor Sarno states, “My administration is proud to highlight the various paving projects that are happening around our city and throughout all of our neighborhoods.  The paving of Liberty Street is one of these projects that will greatly enhance the quality of life for our residents and businesses, including our seniors which utilize our Hungry Hill Senior Center on Liberty Street.  Liberty Street is a very busy residential and commercial corridor, from the Springfield Plaza on the Chicopee line, to all of the residential side streets, and to the many businesses and storefronts heading to the State Police barracks at the rotary.  I want to thank State Senator Adam Gomez for his efforts in securing the $850,000 earmark for this project in the state Transportation Bond Bill, and to City Councilors Attorney Michael Fenton and Attorney Sean Curran for working with my administration to advance this key infrastructure project.”        

"I am thrilled to share that Springfield has received $850,000 through the Transportation Bond Bill. I was proud to advocate for this critical funding, which seeks to enhance pedestrian and driver safety in the Liberty Street area," said State Senator Adam Gomez (D-Springfield). "Liberty Street and the connecting roads are in desperate need of repair and upgrades as the city continues to see an increase in traffic volume. I look forward to seeing area road repair and improvements in the near future!"
