Hey, it must be Friday! The City of Pittsfield and the Mayor's Office have once again released another road work schedule for next week to kindly let us motorists know what spots to try and avoid.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 7: berm installation on Oxford and Dillon streets.
  • Wednesday, Sept. 8: berm installation on Malcolm Avenue; berm removal on High and Plumb streets.
  • Thursday, Sept. 9: milling on High, Gordon, Deming, and Andover streets.
  • Friday, Sept. 10: milling on Curtin and Paul avenues and Maloney, Lucille, and Hawk streets.

Also, if time permits, milling may occur on Yarmouth and Plumb streets and Anita Drive on Thursday or Friday. Once it becomes available, an update will be shared.

You know the routine by now. If any of the streets being worked on is part of your daily commute, make sure you map out an alternate route to get to your destination. Or, leave your starting point a little earlier to allow for traffic and time delays.

Don't run the risk of your vehicle being towed at your expense. Remember there is no on-street parking during the road work between the hours of 6 a.m.-6 p.m. each day. And of course, the schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions.

The City of Pittsfield thanks you in advance for your patience during this time.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
