And so the 2022 Pittsfield Street Improvement Project rolls on. And thanks to the City of Pittsfield along with the Mayor's Office, not only do we have next week's schedule for street fixer-uppers, but we also have some info regarding the city's new in-house paving list.

First, the Pittsfield Street Improvement Schedule for the upcoming week of Monday, August 8 through Friday, August 12:

  • Monday, Aug. 8 and Tuesday, Aug. 9: topsoil curb on Appleton and Stratford avenues, Howard Street. Cutting keyways for finish asphalt on Roselyn Drive, Cecilia Terrace, Euclid Avenue, and Pinney Place; Albro, Schuyler, and Donovan streets.

The city asks you to keep in mind that depending on the weather, the schedule is subject to change. Also, traffic may be impacted and on-street parking is prohibited between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. during this street work. The city thanks you for your patience.

Second, the city would like you to know(and this is very cool) that they have an in-house paving list now available for review on the city’s website, The paving list is a compilation of scheduled road rehabilitation that will be conducted by the city’s Highway Division.

You can access this document by clicking on the "Highway Division" link available on the Department of Public Services page on the city's website here. In-house paving is expected to begin this coming Monday, August 8.

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.
