The City Department of Public Service and the Mass DOT have determined that the roads paved last summer was done with asphalt that does not meet specifications.  So those roads will need to be milled and re-paved.  According to a release by the city, that work will begin starting Monday.  The contractor used for the initial paving will be performing the work again at no additional cost to the city.

The city is asking residents on the streets listed below to remove parked vehicles from the streets listed below from 7:00 AM through 5:00 PM all next week.

Information on the roadwork was posted on the social media page of the North Adams City Hall.

Beginning Monday, July 27, contractors will begin road milling on the following North Adams Streets: East Main Street, Hospital Avenue, Miner Street, North Church Street, Quincy Street, and Summer Street. Repaving of these streets is expected to begin approximately two weeks later.

Residents on these streets are asked to remove parked vehicles from the streets between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday until further notice.

This project involves the re-paving of roadways which were paved last summer. The City Department of Public Services, MassDOT, and the supplier and contractor determined that the asphalt mix used during last year’s project did not meet specifications, and needs to be removed and replaced. The contractor and supplier are performing this repair work, including all line painting at the conclusion of the project, at no additional cost to the city.
