And the Pittsfield Street Improvement Project rolls on. Believe me, I know how frustrating it is when you're cruising along towards your destination, making excellent time, and then all of a sudden-BAM! You're at a dead stop thanks to construction or street repaving. Don't get too angry though because the end result will mean a better ride and fewer potholes.

And even better, if you know about it ahead of time, you can plan out a revised route. According to a media statement from the City of Pittsfield and the Mayor's Office, the following work will take place June 28-July 2, as part of the City of Pittsfield’s 2021 Street Improvement Project.

Please keep in mind that this work schedule is a revision of an earlier schedule:

  • Monday, June 28: pave-shim course on Arlington Street, Waverly Street, Velma Avenue
  • Tuesday, June 29: pave-shim course on Dalton Avenue & raise structures on Arlington Street
  • Wednesday, June 30: raise structures on Waverly Street & Cascade Street
  • Thursday, July 1: pave-shim course on Cascade Street & raise structures on Velma Avenue
  • Friday, July 2: continue to raise structures on Velma Avenue & final pave of Cascade Street

Also, the city asks you to please keep in mind that there will be no on-street parking in these locations between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The city also asks you to remember that this work schedule may change again, depending on weather conditions. They thank 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.
