Northfield ARRA groundbreaking 5-8-09 084

Transportation Secretary James A. Aloisi, Jr., today broke ground on a federal stimulus project in Northfield – one of the “shovel-ready” transportation projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and part of the Patrick Administration’s Massachusetts Recovery Plan.

The $874,424 scenic byway construction project on Route 10/63 in Northfield includes sidewalk reconstruction along Main Street and Parker Avenue from a point north of River Street northbound to Moody Street.

The project also includes safety improvements at the Parker Avenue intersection, sidewalk repair on several adjacent roadways and restoration of the town common to preserve the town’s historical character.

Massachusetts has received the authority from the federal government to spend a total of $437.9 million on highway projects under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. At least $153.2 million will be committed to “shovel-ready” projects that will be advertised by June.
