When is Haverhill Street from N Reading line to Wakefield Street going to be resurfaced? The contractors installing the new water main did a HORRIBLE job patching their work. I think I might lose some teeth driving down that road!

I completely agree. It should be done before winter.

What about West Street? The work there was completed a long time ago. The stretch nearest the Barrows School is horrendous.

I'll do my best to find out and get back to you.

As for Haverhill Street, according to the DPW they plan to start work next spring. They installed a new water main, so have to wait about six months to make sure the trenches settle before they can start work. They are also considering putting in a bike path. As for West Street, according to the DPW they have to wait for state funding, but are hoping for that to come through next year. They completed the design in-house, but still need to wait for the funding.
