Boy, it never seems to end, does it? Of course, I'm referring to the City of Pittsfield's 2021 Street Improvement Project. But, Lord knows, we definitely still have plenty of streets here in the city that desperately need work.

Thanks to the good folks of the City of Pittsfield and the Mayor's Office, we now have the updated road repair schedule for the week of October 4. Please plan accordingly.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Monday, Oct. 4: pave top on Malcom Driveway aprons; excavation and paving binder on driveway aprons on Dexter and Dillon streets, and raising structures on Plumb Street and Anita Drive.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 5: pave top on driveway aprons on Dexter and Dillon streets; excavation of driveway aprons on Huron Street; and raising structures on Plumb Street and Anita Drive.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 6: berm on Deming and High streets; raising structures on Curtain and Paul avenues, and Maloney, Lucille, and Hawk streets.
  • Thursday, Oct. 7: berm on Deming and High streets; raising structures on Curtain and Paul avenues, Maloney, Lucille, and Hawk streets.
  • Friday, Oct. 8: excavation and paving driveway aprons on Buel Street; raising structures on Curtain and Paul avenues, and Maloney, Lucille, and Hawk streets.

As always, be careful where you park. You don't want to run the risk of your vehicle being towed. Between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on days designated for work, there is no on-street parking.

Plan ahead and map out an alternate route if your daily commute involves any of the streets getting improvements this week or allow yourself extra time to get to your final destination.

The schedule may change at a moment's notice if the weather is a factor. The City of Pittsfield thanks you 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.

LOOK: The most expensive weather and climate disasters in recent decades

Stacker ranked the most expensive climate disasters by the billions since 1980 by the total cost of all damages, adjusted for inflation, based on 2021 data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The list starts with Hurricane Sally, which caused $7.3 billion in damages in 2020, and ends with a devastating 2005 hurricane that caused $170 billion in damage and killed at least 1,833 people.
