Funds being used to mill & pave Westfield roads

The money is coming from the state's local road program

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Westfield wants to smooth the ride for people who drive through the City. Mayor Brian Sullivan and City Engineer Mark Cressotti on Thursday announced a 5-year-pavement management program.

The $1.2-million initiative calls for milling 2 inches of road surface, and paving an overlay of the same thickness. It’s funded through the state’s Chapter 90 Local Road program.

Mayor Sullivan said, “The Department has worked to assess road conditions on all public streets and assign pavement condition scores and we are using those scores to prioritize our limited funds.”

Cressotti said, “We understand that there will never be sufficient funds to do all that needs to be done, but this effort will allow for our limited dollars to be spent more effectively.”

The following streets are going to be repaired and repaved:

  • Franklin Street, from Summer Street to Allen Street
  • Northernmost portions of Montgomery Road
  • Southwick Road, from Mill Street to the Southwick town line
