The Wellesley Department of Public Works (DPW) Highway Division will be paving a number of residential streets in Wellesley. Work is expected to continue through May 23. This schedule may change at any time due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather and equipment problems.
Affected streets are Temple Road, Sterling Road, Westwood Road, Bristol Road, Maugus Hill Road and a portion of Abbott Road. The DPW asks that residents please turn off sprinkler systems in these areas.
There will be NO PARKING on these streets between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Residents who plan to travel at any time during these hours must arrange to park cars in areas not affected by paving.
It is not possible to drive on freshly laid pavement; the DPW can’t predict where crews will be during the course of each day.

Washington Street also got the smooth-as-silk treatment
You may recall that the smooth operators of the Wellesley DPW did another big repaving project back in October 2018. At that time, Washington Street was under construction as roadway milling work took place. Given the volume of traffic that daily goes up and down that main thoroughfare, the work was done in the overnight hours. Specific sections affected were from Route 9 to Glen Road and from Morton Street to Wellesley Avenue.
