Expect smooth sailing through Charlestown, at least for a little while.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced today that the road improvement to Sullivan Square in Charlestown has wrapped up one day ahead of schedule.

"Roadway infrastructure improvements can be disruptive while they're underway, but keep our city and economy moving in the long term," Walsh said in a statement. "We appreciate the public's patience in allowing the Public Works crews to complete this much needed work in a timely and safe manner."

The Public Works Department paved the heavily trafficked roadways in the area, improving safety and access. This is the first major resurfacing work done to that area in the past two decades, according to a statement from the mayor's office.


Alford, Cambridge, Main, West, and Mishawum streets were redone, according to the statement.

Through the rest of the summer, the Sullivan Square area will receive new striping, improved bicycle and pedestrians paths, and new ramps. The project costs $900,000, the statement said.

To express their thanks for cooperation during the repaving, the Public Works Department put up electronic signs reading "Bost Pub Works Says - Thank You For Your Patience - Boston Works for You," according to the statement.
