Fall Paving to Begin in September

Approximately 80% of Roads Repaved Since 2011

Pawtucket – Mayor Donald R. Grebien and the Pawtucket City Council have announced that fall paving will begin in September. After completing 4.5 miles in the spring, the City will be repaving 1.87 miles in the Fall of 2022, bringing the total of repaved roads to 137 miles, approximately 80% of all city streets since 2011.

“The City continues to make significant progress in providing better roads for our residents and businesses,” said Mayor Grebien. “We thank the residents who have supported the bond initiatives that continue to make increasing our quality of life possible. We also thank the community for your patience throughout the construction process.”

The City of Pawtucket has invested approximately $19 million in improving the streets since 2011, most recently using a $5 million bond approved by voters in 2018. A bond referendum question for $3 million in repaving to be used in Fiscal Years 2024 and 2025 will be in front of voters in the November General Election. Approval of this bond would allow the City to continue its progress.

The City asks that residents and visitors please observe the parking restrictions so the crews can efficiently conduct the work and minimize the impact to the community. 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.

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 will also receive notifications. The enclosed list is a planned estimate of all streets; weather conditions or unforeseen events could affect the schedule.
