The Department of Public Works is finalizing the list of streets to be paved in 2022. Mass. Ave and Jefferson Street are under design for drainage and roadway improvements with an expected construction start in summer 2022. The following streets are scheduled for paving and select improvements this spring – Addison Street, Durkee Street, Beech Street, and Mile Hill Road. Streets being proposed for summer and fall paving include Union Avenue (Stark St. to Lake St.), Elm Street (Fairmont St. to Elm St. School), Crescent Street and Franklin Street (from Fairmont St. to School St.).
Streets are assessed in terms of both condition of pavement and utilities within the roadway. Public Works operates under the model of “keep good roads good”. Therefore, the paving program reflects a balanced approach of road reconstruction and paving maintenance. The paving program is coordinated with other utility work including drainage, water, sewer, gas and electric, as well as, improvements to major pedestrian routes.
