A updated, user-friendly website that includes an interactive project map is tracking Governor Patrick's Massachusetts Recovery and Reinvestment Plan for investing in our roads, bridges, rail, airports, and other transportation needs.
The Governor's plan integrates state, federal, and private investments through Transportation Bond Bills, the Accelerated Bridge Repair Program and federal stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to put people to work today repairing our transportation infrastructure.
Federal stimulus funds available through ARRA are now being invested in "shovel-ready" projects across the Commonwealth. Massachusetts received authority under ARRA to spend $437.9 million over two years on road and bridge projects. An additional $319 million will fund urban and regional transit projects.
Please visit the site frequently and check the map for information on individual stimulus projects here.
