Governor Deval Patrick today joined Congressman John Olver and local leaders at Unity Park to highlight the state's $40.1 million rehabilitation of the Gill-Montague Bridge. The project is funded by the Governor's statewide road and bridge program and is one of hundreds of road and bridge repair projects underway in the Commonwealth.
The project now underway will rehabilitate the existing structurally-deficient steel truss structure carrying Avenue A over the Connecticut River connecting Gill and Montague. The project also includes minor repairs to the General Pierce Bridge, which will be in use during construction of the Gill-Montague Bridge. The project is scheduled for completion in 2014 and is partially funded by a $3 million appropriation by Congressman Olver.
The Gill-Montague Bridge project is one of several hundred underway or scheduled to break ground this year as part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's Massachusetts Works initiative. MassDOT's road and bridge investment has grown from $515 million in FY 2007 to a projected $1.1 billion in FY 2010. The road and bridge construction program will support more than 10,000 jobs on 385 separate projects across the Commonwealth.
