Upcoming Anticipated Paving Schedule for 2024

Posted on January 30, 2024


Chapter 90 funds from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is the source of funding Cities and Towns use to improve and maintain publicly accepted roads. The order of roads to be improved have been identified through our City’s pavement management system that rates the conditions of roads, usage, and determines the order of priority for repair. The following is the paving schedule we can expect in 2024. NOTE: These are subject to change and the costs are estimates and are subject to change as well.

In addition, the State has allotted from the Fair Share Amendment a total of $473,823 on top of what we already collect in our Chapter 90 allocation. With a focus on roads particularly downtown Holyoke, the following is the paving schedule we can expect in 2024 in accordance to the order of priority identified in our pavement management system.

Also, the state plans to repave Route 141, Easthampton Road from Lindor Heights to the Town Line – 1.853 miles. Anticipated cost $1,034,131.05.

Lastly, I am trying to see if I can use local appropriation or Free Cash to supplement the work so we can stretch our road improvement efforts. The following is a list of additional roads from the pavement management system we can possibly do this year if I can leverage an additional $1,000,000 working with the City Council on top of the remaining available Chapter 90 money allocation.
