City focuses on road maintenance

Somerville is rolling out a new data-focused model for prioritizing street and sidewalk maintenance. Engineers for the city and consulting firm Fay, Spofford, and Thorndike reviewed every public road in the city last year to create the model. In addition to road and sidewalk condition, it also takes into account handicap accessibility, transit access, and trees, and shifts focus to preventative maintenance, according to a prepared statement from Mayor Joseph Curtatone. Along with the new model, Curtatone is calling for $1.5 million in supplemental city funding for roads and sidewalks.
