The City of Pittsfield 2021 Street Improvement Project rolls on! Here's the latest, updated schedule of roadwork for streets in Pittsfield for the week of October 12-October 15:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 12: Pave top on driveway aprons Dillon and Dexter streets (residents shouldn't park in driveways if they need to get out, as the top course needs time to set and cool).
  • Wednesday, Oct. 13: Excavation of aprons on Buel Street.
  • Thursday, Oct. 14: Excavation of remaining sidewalks on Hawthorne Avenue.
  • Friday, Oct. 15: Repave sidewalks on Hawthorne Avenue.

As you can see, no work is scheduled for Monday, October 11, in observance of Columbus Day or Indigenous Peoples Day.

You may want to map out an alternate route if your daily commute involves any of the streets scheduled for roadwork. Or get an earlier start to give yourself some extra time to get to your final destination.

On-street parking is prohibited during this work between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day. As a reminder, for the work occurring on Tuesday, residents whose aprons will be replaced and who will need to access their vehicles should park on adjacent streets to Dillon and Dexter. Don't run the risk of having your vehicle towed at your expense and be careful where you park.

As always, the roadwork 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.

The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
