City to spend $13.75m to pave 45 miles of Boston’s streets this summer season
The summer construction season is poised to kick off in Boston, as Mayor Thomas M. Menino announced $13.75 million worth of renovations to roads and sidewalks today.
The mayor’s office warned property owners who hope to begin their own construction projects along the 45 miles of roadway slated for repairs to consult the proposal’s fact sheet before beginning, because conflicts between private projects and the roadwork may result in a loss of permit.
“Our residents deserve the best roads and sidewalks in their neighborhoods,” Menino said in a statement. “Not only are clean and safe passages a matter of public safety, they also help support our small businesses.”
The mayor hopes this year’s repairs will surpass the benchmark set last year, when 40 miles of roads were repaved and 1,325 pedestrian ramps were rebuilt, the most in Boston’s history for one construction season, the statement said.
