City of Pittsfield in-house paving list - now on city website

The City of Pittsfield’s in-house paving list, a compilation of scheduled road rehabilitation that will be conducted by the city’s Highway Division is 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.

“This is our highway division work on road rehabilitation. We don’t contract this work out,” said Commissioner Ricardo Morales, of the Department of Public Services and Utilities. “We focus on unaccepted and smaller streets that normally would not be eligible for Chapter 90 funding.”

Funding for this work comes from the city’s operating budget. In-house road work is expected to begin this month and will based off a ranking order that reflects a variety of input, Morales said.

“We took data in from our survey for all the roads in Pittsfield. Additionally, we incorporated input from ward councilors regarding their respective wards,” he said. “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.”
