[ARCHIVED] Repaving / Reconstruction Notice: On or After July 16, 2021 - North Street

The Town of Hingham Engineering Department will be repaving and/or reconstructing the entire length or sections of the following roads beginning on or after July 16, 2021, until complete.

  • North Street (Beal Street to Lincoln Street)

 All scheduling dates are dependent on weather conditions and subject to change. Please be sure to check our Town’s website for any updates to this schedule. The process will begin by milling the existing roadway, followed by paving the roadway with asphalt. This work will take approximately four days to complete.

You may experience minor travel delays during this time. On-street parking will not be permitted from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM during the days contractors are working in your neighborhood. Vehicles which interfere with this project will be removed. 

Vehicle access to your property (driveways-parking etc.) will be limited during certain times while the work is underway. Personal and contractor vehicles should be kept off the roadway. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We request that you be mindful that the asphalt exceeds 300° F when placed and can damage your vehicles' tires if you drive on it before it cools. Cooling to a safe temperature can take over an hour during the hot summer months, so please plan ahead. We will do our best to accommodate your access needs and maintain a safe route of travel throughout construction.

The final step in our paving process will occur sometime this summer, with two coats of a 3/16” thick microsurface emulsion. Notice will be provided when the work is scheduled.

If you should have any questions, please call the Department of Public Works at 781 741-1430.


NOTE:  The Town of Hingham or its’ contractors are not responsible for the replacement of or readjustment of materials such of cobblestones, bricks, landscape borders, cement structures, private underground utilities (i.e. electric, irrigation, etc.), or other objects which are placed within the town layout without permission.
