Bradford Street Paving Public Notice

The Provincetown Public Works Department is preparing to begin their Spring paving projects.

In April, Department of Public Works (DPW) crews plan to repair and resurface Bradford Street from Carver Street heading West to an area approximate to Franklin Street. Currently the road in the project area has been deemed to be in poor condition.

The scope of work involves milling down 2” of the existing pavement, adjusting all cast iron & rebuilding drainage structures, removing & resetting all curbing, replacing damaged curbing, resurfacing the sidewalk with pavement, installing concrete handicap ramps, and finally resurfacing the roadway with 2” of fresh pavement.

Please note that the existing sidewalk may be widened anywhere between 4 and 12 inches to obtain a minimum sidewalk width of 48 inches. This improvement will provide better handicap accessibility for pedestrians in the area.

A definitive schedule has not been determined as the asphalt plant has not indicted when they will be opening for the season. It is anticipated that the contractor will arrive in Provincetown on Monday April 2nd and continue work until project is completed on or about April 20th.

Line painting will then follow at a later date when crews are in Town for other contracted work.

Overall Bradford Street will remain passable during most of the construction project, but portions of the roadway may be temporarily closed or traffic may be rerouted by police officers to ensure safety.

Please plan ahead and avoid this area if you are able.

There will be follow up emails as the project start date nears so please ensure you are subscribed to the alert system.
