It's a new week here in Pittsfield which means the City's 2021 Street Improvement Project continues with more roadwork and even sidewalk work scheduled.
Once again, thanks to the City of Pittsfield and the Mayor's Office, we've got the updated roadwork schedule for October 25-October 29. It's all part of the 2021 Street Improvement Project.
This week's schedule is as follows:
- Monday, Oct. 25: Pave Westview Road and loam on Malcolm Avenue.
- Tuesday, Oct. 26: Loam on Dexter, Dillon, and Huron streets.
- Wednesday, Oct. 27: Loam and/or excavation of aprons on Gordon and Deming streets.
- Thursday, Oct. 28 – Friday, Oct. 29: Loam and/or excavation and paving of aprons on High Street.
Additionally, Monday through Friday, the work will include raising structures on Cliff, Paul, and Curtain avenues, Maloney, Lucille, Hawk, and Yarmouth streets, and Anita Drive.
As always, you may want to map out an alternate route to your destination if your commute involves any of the streets being worked on. Or, leave your starting point earlier to allow for extra time.
Remember that on-street parking is prohibited during this work between the hours of 6 a.m.-6 p.m. each day. Be careful where you park and don't run the risk of your vehicle being towed at your expense.
Also happening later this week on Thursday, October 28, and Friday, October 29, the city’s sidewalk contractor will be working at the intersection of Elm, East, and 4th streets taking out panels and prepping the area for upcoming work. No parking restrictions during the sidewalk work.
Keep in mind that either schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions. The City Of Pittsfield thanks you in advance for your patience.
LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean
With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track.
