Lynn, Governor Patrick, Route 129 Broadway Groundbreaking, June 19, 2014Governor Deval Patrick today kicked off the reconstruction of a half-mile segment of Broadway/Route 129 in Lynn. The project will completely rebuild a key segment of Broadway between Wyoma Square and Flax Pond that connects regional traffic to Routes 1, 1A, and I-95/Route 128, and will increase safety and ease congestion in an area home to numerous small businesses and restaurants.

“Our transportation infrastructure is vital to continued economic growth and enhancing access to opportunities for businesses and residents alike,” said Governor Patrick. “Making investments like this that will relieve congestion will keep us moving forward in the right direction.”

In addition to reconstructing the roadway, the $5.5 million project will install new traffic signals equipped with modern technology to improve the traffic flow through the corridor. Other aspects of the project include reconstruction of sidewalks, new pedestrian crossings and improved drainage infrastructure. Completion of the project is scheduled for April 2016.

“It’s clear that the existing technology is not managing traffic as effectively as it could,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola. “Our goal is to rebuild this corridor so it meets the needs of today and that the area experiences a resurgence of economic activity.”

The reconstruction of Broadway/Route 129 in Lynn advances the Patrick Administration’s Gateway Cities Initiatives to make long-term investments in education, innovation and infrastructure and provide economic growth to cities and towns throughout the Commonwealth.
