Road repairs on a patch of McPhillips Street in the North End are on pace to be
completed by July 15, the city says.
A city spokesperson said all lanes between Selkirk and Redwood avenues are
expected to reopen then as crews wrap up the $1.6-million project.
Crews have been working extended hours during the evenings and on the weekends as part of the city’s accelerated capital construction program, she said.
North and southbound lanes have been intermittently closed since May 16 as crews repair concrete joints, curbs and sidewalks, and resurface the road with asphalt.
Meanwhile, other workers have begun sidewalk and curb improvements further south on McPhillips, just past the underpass near Logan Avenue.
The work, estimated between $10,000 to $15,000, is part of the city’s regional street sidewalk program, the spokesperson said. The work should be wrapped up by July 5, the spokesperson said.
The city will spend $450,000 this year to fix up sidewalks across the city.
