Spring Has Sprung!

Woonsocket Highway Crews Hit the Road Paving


WOONSOCKET, R.I.: Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt announced today that the warmer, spring weather has allowed the City of Woonsocket’s Highway Division to begin their annual road reconstruction and paving program. The Citys "in-house" paving crew has kicked off the season on Viva Way, street that has not been paved in 50 years! The City will be releasing information regarding other roads on this years paving schedule.

Mayor Baldelli-Hunt exclaimed, "A sure first sign of spring is seeing our Highway paving crews making our streets safer and more enjoyable to drive and walk on." The Mayor added, "As our paving season begins, I would like to especially acknowledge our talented road crews, as well as Director DAgostino for training and maintaining the only in-house, municipal road paving crew in the State. Using our own crews to pave some of our streets allows us to improve more roads and is a savings to the taxpayers.
