The City of Andover administers a street overlay program to rehabilitate and prolong the life of the City’s street infrastructure and defers the need for a more expensive total reconstruction. A mill and overlay is expected to extend the life of the streets another 15+ years before a full reconstruction would be considered. 

Bluebird Street between Crosstown Boulevard and Hanson Boulevard has been identified for a mill and overlay in 2022.    Link to Project Location Map 

Improvements will include milling the existing wearing course off of the roadway and paving a new bituminous surface.  Also included would be replacement of a limited amount of deteriorated curb and gutter, minor storm sewer repairs, and replacing pedestrian curb ramps not meeting ADA standards.    

25% of the project costs are being assessed to properties fronting the improvements.  The remaining 75% of the project costs will be funded through the City’s Road and Bridge Fund and in turn reimbursed through Municipal State Aid funds.
