Is Your Street on the City of Pittsfield’s In House Paving List?
We get updates on occasion from the Office of Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer on the ongoing Street Improvement Project, which lets us know which streets in the city are due for milling and or paving work.
Today we received information of the City of Pittsfield’s “In-House” paving list, which is a compilation of scheduled road rehabilitation that will be conducted by the city’s Highway Division.
The full list is posted and available for review on the city’s website, cityofpittsfield.org.
The document can be accessed by clicking on the “Highway Division” link available on the Department of Public Services page.
Department of Public Services and Utilities Commissioner Ricardo Morales, says the focus is on unaccepted streets.
This is our highway division work on road rehabilitation. We don’t contract this work out... We focus on unaccepted and smaller streets that normally would not be eligible for Chapter 90 funding.
Commissioner Morales says that the Funding for this work comes from the city’s operating budget. In-house road work is expected to begin this month and will be based on a ranking order that reflects a variety of input.
We took data in from our survey for all the roads in Pittsfield. Additionally, we incorporated input from ward councilors regarding their respective wards... As this is a priority-based approach, we want constituents to know that if their road is not done this year, due to monetary or time constraints, it will be given added priority next year.
