Road to Repair: Town Release Streets To Be Fixed
Due to delays, two years worth of street repairs will get underway beginning this year.
If you live on Creeley Road, you've hit the road jackpot.
Creeley and its cross streets of Flett Road and Francis Street will be some of the first roads that will be reconstructed by the town as long-awaited repairs to town streets has been announced this week.
Due to an extraordinary delay in putting together proposals and putting out bids, two years worth of road repair will commence in the coming months, according to Glenn Clancy, director of Belmont's Office of Community Development at last week's Warrant Committee's pre-Town Meeting Informational Briefing.
Last year, the town allocated $1.8 million and $1.2 million this year in pavement management.
But even though the money has been targeted, reconstruction will not start for the 2013 selected roads until the town coordinates with utility companies on a schedule of future repairs.
The streets selected to be repaired are determined by a grading system that ranks them by their condition, the lower the number the most in need of repair.
Of the streets listed below, Francis Street has the lowest number at 29 followed by Trowbridge Street, Dunbarton Road and Oak Street
