While Halloween is best know for tricks or treats, it will only be for former for residents and commuters driving through Belmont Center as two weeks of paving Concord Avenue and Leonard Street begins tonight, Oct. 31.
Beginning at 8 p.m., Concord Avenue from from Pleasant Street (where Belmont Police headquarters is located) up to the US Post Office at 405 Concord Ave. will be paved during the overnight hours until 5 a.m.
According to Peter Castanino, director of Belmont's Department of Public Works, the nighttime paving schedule "will help to limit the traffic and parking
impacts that would otherwise occur during a daytime construction schedule."
The work on this portion of the repaving will continue until Thursday, Nov. 6, weather permitting. Then the crews will direct their efforts to Leonard Street where work will be performed from Alexander Avenue to Concord Avenue until Nov. 13.
Questions relating to the project or schedule should be directed to the Water Division office at 617-993- 2700 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday or during the overnight hours, directly to Dave Powers at 617-438-2079.
