North Harvard Street Getting Repaved!

Written by Boston Biker on Jun 30

We all know it, we all hate it, the ass pounding that is North Harvard street is finally getting repaved…and not a moment too soon.

I got this from a semi-reliable source…the internet


From an email from Dan Roan, in charge of that shit in allston-

The Boston Public Works Department (PWD) is preparing to begin the roadway resurfacing of the section of North Harvard Street, from Western Avenue to Soldiers Field Road. Work on this section by Aggregate Industries is anticipated to begin on July 15, 2009 and be substantially completed by July 25. As always, projected schedules are dependant on the weather.
The scope of work includes:

Grind the existing roadway down to a depth of 3 inches. Please note that this phase only of the project will be conducted during two consecutive nights between the hours of 7:00PM and 5:00AM, tentatively scheduled for July 15 and 16. This will enhance our ability to greatly accelerate the project completion. All other work will take place between the hours of 7:00AM and 5:00PM

Reset all manholes and castings.
Install base asphalt binder course.
Apply top surface layer of asphalt.
Install all lane markings including bike lanes.

Please note that traffic lanes will be open at all times and Boston Police details will be on site to coordinate pedestrian and traffic flow. Temporary parking restrictions will be posted in advance. Please contact the Project Manager, Kevin Linskey, at 617-438-8507 with any issues that arise during construction.

Meeting July 6th at 6pm at the Honan allston library on north harvard to discuss with community members. I plan on being there to ask they don’t place manholes and metal slabs in the bike lane, like happened on the Comm Ave project.
