Contractors this week were set to begin Burlington’s annual road improvement program. According to town engineer Thomas F. Hayes, all or parts of 15 roads will be repaved this year, including some that will be fully reconstructed and others that will be simply resurfaced. The list includes all of Baxter Circle, Mountain Road, Black Horse Lane, Ray Avenue, Sumner Street, Burlington Street, Richard Road, Center Street, Rolling Lane, Wing Terrace, Given Drive, and Russell Circle, and parts of Skelton Road, Upland Road, and Winn Street. The town is also undertaking maintenance work on other roads. Less extensive than regular repaving, that work involves re-sealing cracks or applying a thin surface layer to the street. This year’s road work is expected to be completed by the end of August. It is being funded through a combination of $750,000  the town was allotted by the state through its Chapter 90 local road improvement program, and some of the approximately $1 million  budgeted by the town for road projects in fiscal years 2012 and 2013.  The town will maintain an updated schedule of the roadway work on the Department of Public Works’ Engineering Division’s page of Burlington’s web site, www.burlington.org. -- John Laidler, Globe Correspondent
