Summer/fall paving continues today with several roads slated for completion by day's end.

These roads are as follows: Lewis Road, Palmer Road, Cutting Road, Mostyn Street, Allen Road and Baycliffe Road.

The following roads have been milled and received a first coat of paving but still need their castings — sewer covers and such — raised and a final coat of asphalt.

They are Humphrey Street, Puritan Road, Spring Court, Oakledge road, Plymouth Lane, Belleair Drive, Duke Street and Ryan Street.

The town selected the most competive bidder for the summer and fall paving contract, DR Paving of Melrose, Public Works Director Gino Cresta said earlier.

DR bid $840,000 on the estimated $950,000 paving package, he said.

Under the contract the Melrose company will have 90 days to complete the work, he said.

The two worst streets in town are not on that list - Roy and Crescent Streets - how did the town select which streets would be paved? Puritan Road?? Sidewalks in many spots are impassable - it's not great seeing kids walking to school in the middle of the street but hey - it's this side of town, who cares

Let me add - in the middle of the "sinking, pot-hole filled, dangerous, uneven, motion-sickness inducing, dangerous, oh i said that....dangerous, uneven, splitting, cracking" street with speeding traffic at certain times of the day......ugh a disaster waiting to happen
