Jerusalem Road Paving Update and Paving Moratorium Information


Please be advised:

Jerusalem Road roadwork will begin in August with final top course of pavement installed in October. 

Paving Moratorium Information

Any persons requiring to perform excavation within the public way of Jerusalem Road from Rust Way (#450 Jerusalem Rd) northward to Hull Street (#821 Jerusalem Rd), must notify the Cohasset Department of Public Works via email at engineering@cohassetma.org. All planned work within the road layout must be completed before September 30, 2017.

Once the road top course of pavement has been installed the Town will enforce a 5 year moratorium on any street opening permits to protect the Town’s capital investment. Since modern bituminous concrete surface materials remain in excellent condition for many years beyond the aforesaid period, and since cuts into the paved surface are the greatest single contributor to pavement deterioration, utility companies and contractors will be strictly limited in excavating town streets irrespective of surface age. 

Below is the list of the current roads protected under the 5 year moratorium.
