I-391 Chicopee to Holyoke sign update
« on: January 16, 2020, 10:38:01 AM »

On December 7th, a project (MassDOT Project # 608575) was advertised to replace and update the signs and most structures on I-391 between I-91 in Chicopee and the end of the freeway at Commercial Street in Holyoke.

Of special note is that this project will also replace the 'orphan' button copy signs and structures on MA 33 in Holyoke and South Hadley.

The bid opening is scheduled for Tuesday, April 14th at 2 pm.  Bid documents are not yet available.

Are the new signs going to maintain the existing exit numbers, since it has already been determined that the DOT will not change them in the upcoming sequential-to-mileage-based exit renumbering plan?

That leaves us nearly 3 months to break in and steal them.

That is correct.  New signs will use the current exit numbers.

Could they also resurface it?  It's in rough shape.
