A new phase in what is said to be the largest mill redevelopment project in New England is under way in Ludlow, Massachusetts. 

A 1.5- mile long riverwalk is being built as part of the redevelopment of the Ludlow Mills, a sprawling complex of more than 60 buildings on 170 acres.  The walk, which will be constructed of recycled brick, will feature markers highlighting the history of the mills and observation areas along the banks of the Chicopee River.

The largest brownfield mill redevelopment project in New England, in Ludlow Massachusetts, has been designated a priority project by Massachusetts state officials.  WAMC”s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill reports.

Massachusetts Lt Gov Timothy Murray recently added five new projects to the state’s Brownfields Support Team Initiative. Ludlow Mills is the only project in western Massachusetts to be designated for the cleanup assistance in this latest round.
