2018 Pavement Management Program

Sign up for notifications at


The Sudbury Public Works Department is implementing the first year of its Pavement Management Program. This year’s program, which totals approximately $1.2M, is focused on pavement preservation. The program will use industry-leading methods to assure the work is completed as efficiently as possible and that the road surface improvements last for many years.

During the process, we aim to produce the least disruption possible to drivers and residents.


  • Timeframe: Beginning July 9, 2018 and continuing throughout the summer.
  • Roadwork starts at 7:00AM and may continue into the evening hours as needed.
  • Night work will make it possible to keep roads open during the day to allow normal traffic flow. However, night work, which is performed between 8:00PM – 3:00AM, may be disruptive at times.
  • There may be times that you not have full access to your driveway.
  • Loose stones will result for 2-3 days on some roads as they “cure”. The stones will be swept and removed and the road will smooth out over time with the addition of more traffic.
  • It is crucial that vehicles and pedestrians please follow all signs and observe traffic control crew instructions to avoid damages to the road work as well as your vehicle.
  • To receive notifications regarding road work and closures, please sign up at:

Schedules are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions that are out of the control of the Public Works Department including weather, equipment-related issues and other contractor commitments.   Additional work may be added or work limits may be altered as budgets and construction season allows. Thank you for your patience during this process.

Nighttime roadwork is scheduled along Hudson Road beginning tomorrow, Thursday, August 2, 2018. The hours will be from 8PM to 3AM. This work is being completed at night to improve efficiency in the application of the surface treatment and to expedite the curing process.

All dates are dependent on weather, sub-contractors’ schedules and any other unforeseen issues.


July 24, 2018 Update

Plans to start this Tuesday (7/24) have been postponed due to weather. All work will be starting on Hudson Road potentially Thursday (7/26) and Landham Road potentially next week (7/30). These are the best available estimates at this time. Additional inclement weather will further slide the schedule. 


July 20, 2018 Update

July 27 (Fri.): Fairbank Road paving (weather permitting)
Preservation Work:
July 20 (Fri.): Message boards deployed

July 24-27 (Tues.-Fri.): Hudson Road (Fire Department entrance to Spruce Lane), Old Sudbury Road (Town Hall to Wayland line) and Landham Road prep work (milling out poor sections of roadway & repaving) (3-4 days)

July 30 – August 1 (Mon.-Wed.): Structure adjustment to follow (2-3 days)

August 1 (Wed.): Chip seal portion on Hudson Road (7am to completion)

July 29 – August 9 (Sun.-Thurs.): Cracksealing 8pm-3:30am (estimated 10 nights)

The Preservation Work (resurfacing) is a fast-moving operation that will leave small sections of ground asphalt (milled) open until the end of the day when they are paved.

Micro surfacing and cape sealing (Phase 2) are extremely fast-moving operations, but they will cause major disruptions during the application process. Patience and understanding is greatly appreciated as we work to improve our roads as efficiently as possible with the highest quality result.
