By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
01:29AM / Wednesday, July 14, 2021

DALTON, Mass. — Despite the town's best efforts, an overhaul of the bridge at East Housatonic Street and Carson Avenue with inadequate pedestrian access was not chosen for an anticipated federal infrastructure bill.

"As it turns out, Massachusetts was allowed 10 projects to be put in as possible projects for the federal infrastructure bill, and this did not make the cut," Traffic Commission Chairman Daniel Filiault told the commission Monday during their meeting.

The two-lane bridge did not meet the criteria for repair because it is structurally sound. This means The project will essentially be in "limbo" until it meets the state's criteria

How does Social Security fit into retirement?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
09:30AM / Tuesday, July 13, 2021
Here's something to think about: You could spend two, or even three, decades in retirement. To meet your income needs for all those years, you'll generally need a sizable amount of retirement assets. How will Social Security fit into the picture?   For most people, Social Security won't be enough to cover the cost of living in retirement. Nonetheless, Social Security benefits are still valuable, so you'll want to do whatever you can to maximize them.   Your first move is to determine when you should start taking Social Security.

Letter: Bridge/Road repair
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Monday, July 12, 2021

To the Editor:

I sympathize with the people on Holmes Road with their bridge in disrepair. Just come on out to the Peck's Road Causeway, Hancock area, and you'll see more barrels and barriers and one-lane lights in such a small area.

It's a shame that the city has let its infrastructure get that bad but mind you we've got bike paths and one-way roads and beautification on North Street. It reminds me of Atlantic City ,one block off of North Street and it turns into a city of disrepair with rising crime!

David Casey
