Pleasant & Taft Streets Paving Project

Commences May 22, 2019

Pleasant Street and Taft Street Paving Project

The Ayer Department of Public Works will be repaving Pleasant Street, between Howard Street and Taft Street, and Taft Street between Pleasant Street and Nashua Street. The work will involve milling and regrading of the paved surfaces, adjusting manhole and catch basin structures and repaving. We are also replacing the existing sidewalk on the west side of Pleasant Street.

Work will begin on Wednesday, May 22 and will continue for 3 or 4 days. Work should be completed by Friday May 31. We will notify residents of these two streets with more specific information.

Traffic on these two roads will be limited to one lane during construction hours and there will be some delays. Police officers will be on site to direct traffic.  Please use alternative routes and drive with caution until the work is completed.
