Baker-Polito Administration Celebrates $250 Million Invested in Road and Bridge Projects in Northeast Massachusetts
90 highway infrastructure projects in 61 Northeast Massachusetts towns are part of over $2.8 billion spent on transportation infrastructure across the Commonwealth
TEWKSBURY– Governor Charlie Baker today joined Acting Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver and MassDOT officials at a roadway resurfacing project to celebrate the Baker-Polito Administration’s investment of over $250 million in Fiscal Year 2017 on 90 roadway and bridge projects impacting 61 local cities and towns in Northeast Massachusetts.
The administration has been visiting MassDOT Highway Districts across the state to highlight the positive regional impacts of more than $2.8 billion spent since 2015 on highway construction projects and bridges, pavement, intersection and sidewalk improvements, and bike lanes, while authorizing over $700 million in Chapter 90 local transportation funding for cities and towns. An additional $30 million has been invested through Complete Streets and Municipal Small Bridge programming to support local transportation planning and community bridges not eligible for federal aid.
Statewide, those investments have paved approximately 2,000 lane miles, enough to cross Massachusetts and back at least five times; installed 160 miles of sidewalk, enough to almost encircle the Quabbin Reservoir; and rehabilitated or replaced approximately 80 bridges. Projects include installing new safety equipment, optimizing traffic configuration, lane and intersection widening and promoting reduced congestion.
“We are proud to have invested over $250 million in 90 road and bridge projects in 61 cities and towns across northeastern Massachusetts this past year,” said Governor Baker. “Improving the Commonwealth’s highways, roads, bridges, public transit, and sidewalks provides new opportunities for transit and development throughout our communities.”
“By continuing efforts to upgrade infrastructure, we are able to support local communities and promote job growth to keep our economy strong,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “During the last year, MassDOT has had dozens of active roadway and bridge projects underway in the northeast area of the state, each meaning easier, safer and more efficient travel for people in surrounding communities.”
The maintenance project on Route 38 in Tewksbury, which Governor Baker visited today, began after conversations and collaborative efforts with members of the public, State Senator Barbra L’Italien, State Representative James Miceli, State Representative Jim Lyons, and municipal leaders from the town of Tewksbury. The project includes resurfacing the road, addressing drainage issues and placing pavement markings on a 3,500 foot stretch of Route 38 from the Wilmington town line to the intersection of South Street. The estimated cost of the project is $350,000 and the construction is expected to be completed by the end of this month.
“We are pleased to have been able to work so closely with local elected officials on this project,” said Transportation Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack. “This project, like so many others, provides a vital link between neighborhoods and business districts and the new construction addresses many concerns raised by community members.”
“This work we are seeing today in Tewksbury is a prelude of a larger project set to begin in Fiscal Year 2019,” said Acting Highway Administrator Gulliver. “The larger project is set to include significant improvements to Route 38 intersections as well as road areas beyond the intersections.”
Notable ongoing projects in Northeast Massachusetts or District 4 area include:
