The waste water run off drain was supposedly fixed about a year ago, the problem was crumbling asphalt around the grate. The problem is now, no waste water actually makes its way into the drain after it was addressed.
Great job on the snow clean up down town.
Thank you Hudson Department of Public Works for your excellent snow removal particularly for the sidewalks on Broad St. this morning (Dec. 2nd) I walk sometimes from Marlborough to Hudson on some days. I had already been splashed by slush several times in Marlborough already (they have very few sidewalks and don't remove snow from the few they have, so it is dangerous for walkers.) I was worried as I turned onto Broad St. as it is narrow-ish and curvy. I was very pleased to find the sidewalks clear and so had a safe (and less wet) walk to work at that part. Please let the plowers know they are appreciated (I saw several dog-walkers and a postman clearing mailboxes who I know were thankful also.) Just wish Marlborough would take a leaf from Hudson's book of DPW management. Thank you for making my walk safe! Stephen Vedder
I work on Broad Street and was wondering when the driveway entrances would be paved? (And why weren't they done when the road was done? I noticed that the paving company did the street entrances and the retail entrances)
Thank you for finally completing Broad Street repaving. I see white spray-painting on Giasson Street. Now what??
Is there an update to Broad St.?
Not sure if this is the right page but can someone fix the light at school street? It stays green for about 5 seconds. It's enough to get a car and a half through the intersection and that's if we don't have to wait for the washington st. Drivers who won't be courteous enough to not block the intersection. Maybe a nice big DO NOT BLOCK THE INTERSECTION sign would be helpful. That's my Friday afternoon traffic rant. Thanks for reading.
Good morning Is there an update on Broad street paving and sidewalks? There had been no movement there for a few days
A question: Who made the decision that there will no longer be access to Forestvale Cemetery via Broad Street, and the only access will be the entry at the corner of Broad and Forestvale? 🤨
Thank you DPW for the great job cutting the tree limbs on South Street this morning. The gentlemen did a great job and they even raked all the dead leaves off the ground.
Dear DPW I live on broad st 161 Just tried to get to my home and everything is blocked !! Had to get out of my car with another neighbor and walk to where the guys were working to ask they move a truck and cones so we could get home This is getting ridiculous!! At least leave one part of the road open No cop there nothing Thank you
I would like to thank Director Ryder and his hard working team at Public Works for the timely repair of a potentially hazardous condition at the end of Arlington street recently. Great design. Quality workmanship.
