Well, once again it's Friday! And that can only mean one thing. It's time to announce next week's schedule for more roadwork as the City of Pittsfield's 2021 Street Improvement Project continues.

The upcoming roadwork is all scheduled for next week, August 30 thru September 3:

  • Monday, Aug. 30 – Tuesday, Aug. 31: raising structures on Buel, Dillon, and Dexter streets and Malcolm Avenue.
  • Monday, Aug. 30 – Wednesday, Sept. 1: berm installation on Clarkson Avenue, Cadwell Road, Hawthorne Avenue, and Oxford Street.
  • Thursday, Sept. 2: paving on Valentine Road and Cadwell Road
  • Friday, Sept. 3: paving on Brenton Terrace, Hawthorne Avenue, Buel, and Oxford streets.

Keep in mind that this schedule is subject to change based on what Mother Nature has to say on any given day. Also, you don't want to run the risk of your vehicle being towed at your expense, so remember that on-street parking is prohibited during this work each day between 6 a.m.-6 p.m.

You may also want to plan an alternate route if any of these streets factor into your daily commute. Leave your starting point early, allow yourself some extra time, or map out a different route to your final destination.

As always, the City of Pittsfield thanks you in advance for your patience during this busy time as the 2021 Street Improvement Project rolls on.

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.
