SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – City leaders in Springfield were in the city’s Hungry Hill Neighborhood on Wednesday to highlight improvements made in that area.

The project, totaled more than $336,000, will help build new sidewalks and wheelchair ramps, along with upgrades to crosswalks and new shade trees along Carew Street, Liberty Street, and Armory Street.

Mayor Sarno states, “This follows up on my administration’s numerous listening sessions and neighborhood walks on how best to use our local ARPA funds to support these quality-of-life neighborhood infrastructure projects. The installation of new sidewalks is important for our residents and local businesses. I want to thank the Hungry Hill Neighborhood Council for their efforts and for working with my administration to advance this important neighborhood project.”

This project was funded through both ARPA funding and Community Block Development grants.
