Round 2 of street repaving begins tomorrow

Kezer promised during his election campaign last fall to make a substantial investment in repaving roads and fixing sidewalks. Since then, more than $500,000 in free cash, state funds and federal Community Development Block Grant money has been used for street and sidewalk repair.

The current round of repaving comes as work on the Route 110 widening project winds down. The road was repaved earlier this month. According to Kezer, the only task remaining is to repaint the lines on the road and complete some finishing touches before the $5.9 million state project is officially complete.

Residents who have questions about the repaving projects or would like further information should call the DPW office at 978-388-8116.
