Road work closes section of Fearing Street in Amherst

AMHERST — A section of Fearing Street next to the Southwest Area of the University of Massachusetts campus is closed to traffic as it gets rebuilt.

The project involves reconstructing the road from the intersection with University Drive to where it meets Sunset Avenue, with new sidewalks to be installed and additional lighting, said UMass spokeswoman Mary Dettloff.

As part of the work, the Pierpont parking lot will be resurfaced.

The project will wrap up in late August, Dettloff said.

Amherst Department of Public Works Director Guilford Mooring said he was aware of the project, which has only a limited impact on the town’s right of way.
