Work at the M.J. Painting brownfield cleanup on Franklin Street resumed earlier this month after operations that began last summer ended for the winter.

“The project is so big we had to do it over two seasons,” said M.J. Painting owner Mike John. “With phase 1 done, the project is about 60% complete.”

The cleanup, which is a cooperative venture involving Exxon-Mobil, the successor company to Socony Vacuum Oil Co., which once had a refinery and tank farm on the site; the state Department of Environmental Conservation; and M.J. Painting.

Last summer, people driving by on Interstate 86 near Exit 25 couldn’t miss the giant excavation, which covered more than one-fifth of the site. Contaminated dirt was removed from the site.
