Pothole repairs to cost more than $1 million

NORTHAMPTON, Mass (WWLP) — Roads in Northampton won’t be plagued by potholes for too much longer.

Department of Public Works crews will start permanently repairing roads this month. Bridge Road will be the first of 60 roads to get repaved starting this month. This project will cost the city $1.8 million in total.

The City Council approved $500 thousand for the project on Thursday, which the Mayor will borrow as part of a bond request. Another $1.5 million will come from the state’s Chapter 90 funds.

Starting this month, DPW crews will use 48 tons of asphalt a day, to repave, resurface, and seal city roads.

The Mayor is encouraging residents to report potholes by calling 413-587-1570.
