By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:58PM / Wednesday, June 22, 2022
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A public hearing on a $3.1 million roundabout at the intersection of Routes 7 and 43 raised concerns over Route 7's steep grade leading into the intersection and the impact on the historic Store at Five Corners.    The concept of a roundabout, however, seemed to be generally supported after state officials made clear its construction should not impinge upon the 239-year-old store, though there are lingering concerns about the steep hill.    The state Department of Transportation on Tuesday night unveiled plans at 25 percent design phase for the roundabout to slow speeds and improve safety at the junction.
