What does 5-year moratorium mean?
The Town of Hingham works hard at maintaining our roadways. We follow a strict 5-year moratorium rule to insure that a newly paved road is not ripped up shortly after we have repaved them. For example, if a street was reconstructed in 2016, it will not be able to be cut into until 2022 (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021; the following spring 2022 work may be considered to be done on that road.)
