  • Monday, Sept. 20 – Tuesday, Sept. 21: removal of curbing and excavation on Gordon Street.
  • Wednesday, Sept. 22: excavation of sidewalks on Hawthorne Avenue.
  • Thursday, Sept. 23 – Friday, Sept. 24: driveway excavation and paving on Malcolm Avenue and Dexter, Dillon, and Huron streets.

I'm sure most of you know the deal by now. Do not run the risk of your vehicle being towed at your expense. Be careful where you park. On-street parking is prohibited during this work between the hours of 6 a.m.-6 p.m. each day.

Also(unless you're a fan of sitting in your car, doing nothing, while you're waiting for traffic to start moving again), you may want to map out an alternate route if your daily commute involves any of the streets undergoing roadwork this week. Or, at the very least, leave the house a little earlier than normal to give yourself extra time to reach your destination.

Depending on what Mother Nature brings to the table on any given day, the work schedule may change. The City of Pittsfield thanks you in advance for your patience during this busy 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.
