Repair crews arrived at 137 Roosevelt Avenue this afternoon to begin work to the roof located above Fire Station 2, City Hall and the Police Station.
The repairs are the result of a long-standing water intrusion issue that is finally able to be addressed through the Renovation and Improvement Public Buildings Bond that was overwhelmingly approved by voters in the 2014 General Election.
The repairs will include the reinsulating and resurfacing of PVC roofing located above the fire and police stations as well as four flat roof segments abutting the City Hall tower. Capeway Roofing has been tasked with completing the repairs after a public, formal bid process. The bid awarded to Capeway Roofing was approved by the City of Pawtucket’s Purchasing Board this past February.
The Pawtucket Public Library is the next public building slated for significant structural improvements.
