The City of Pawtucket Announces the Start of Spring Paving

Today, Mayor Donald R. Grebien announced that the Pawtucket Department of Public Works will resume road repaving. The first repaving efforts of the spring will take place on Kelton Street beginning at Revere Street and continuing up towards Rice Street. Construction on each road segment is typically completed over a span of two weeks, weather permitting. The City has paved 45% percent of the city’s streets over the past five years.

“We are making significant progress reinvesting in our roads and infrastructure. In the last five years alone, the City has re-paved more than 80 miles of our roads, and is scheduled to complete 15 miles this year,” said Mayor Grebien. “I want to thank our residents for supporting our bond-initiative that is making this possible, as well as their patience during construction.”

Roadways are first milled to remove the top surface of the pavement. Once that top surface of pavement is removed, the asphalt is laid. Signage will be posted along the street when work is to be performed. Residents received letters alerting them to the paving in the summer of 2017. The enclosed list is a planned estimate of all streets; weather conditions or unforeseen events could affect the schedule.  

We ask that residents and visitors please observe the parking restrictions so the City can efficiently conduct the work and minimize the impact to the City’s residents. Residents are advised that construction progress may also bring dust and noise but the temporary inconvenience will create better and safer roads for years to come, while also paving the way for future economic growth.

If residents or businesses have any questions, they should call Public Works at 728-0500 ext. 284.
