October 2015

The Department of Public Works and the City’s Community Development Department hosted the second community meeting to discuss the Hurlbut Street Reconstruction Project on Wednesday, October 14 at 6:30pm, at the Graham and Parks School auditorium located at 44 Linnaean Street.

During this meeting a conceptual plan was presented that includes new sidewalks and creates an accessible sidewalk route that meets access codes and addresses the needs of all users.

This project is a part of the City’s five year plan for street and sidewalk reconstruction, and the Hurlbut Street project is scheduled to begin in Spring 2016.

Summer 2015

There is no scheduled work or community meetings scheduled for the summer months. Over the summer months, city staff will be working with select residents regarding accessibility issues. Another community, where the draft design will be presented, will take place in Fall 2015.


The city's contractor, Newport Construction, is expected to return to Hurlbut St on Monday, April 10 (weather permitting) to resume construction activities.  Crews will first replace lead water services on the street (only properties identified with lead services), then reconstruct sidewalks, pedestrian ramps and pave the roadway.

We expect construction to take about 6 weeks to complete.

Please check back for updates. 

The City of Cambridge has a 5 Year Roadway and Sidewalk Reconstruction Plan. The conditions of all roadways and sidewalks are evaluated on an annual basis to address the surface conditions. Hurlbut Street has been identified as two streets that have poor surface conditions and are in need of new surfaces. Before the contractor breaks ground, we will complete an evaluation of utility lines (water and sewer) to ensure that no updates are needed. At this same time, we will allow Eversource Gas to conduct their own evaluation to decide on whether or not any services or gas mains need to be updated. If any utility work is required, it will be performed before the sidewalks and roadway are reconstructed.
