Governor Patrick, Marshfield Route 139, March 29, 2012Governor Deval Patrick today joined state and town officials along with Marshfield and South Shore Chambers of Commerce members to break ground on the $4.1 million Route 139 widening project. 

The one mile stretch of Route 139 between School Street and Furnace Street narrows to one travel lane in each direction. For years, that configuration has slowed traffic and starved businesses along the corridor.  The project now under way will widen the roadway to two lanes in each direction and install a traffic signal at Route 139 and Enterprise Drive along with new sidewalks.

“This project will alleviate congestion in Marshfield, and provide businesses will new opportunities to grow and to thrive,” said Governor Patrick. “Our Administration is committed to infrastructure improvements just like this one, to catalyze private development and boost job growth for the region.”

“This infrastructure project is one that addresses a long-standing traffic issue, meets regional economic development needs, and is sustaining several dozen construction jobs,” said Richard A. Davey, MassDOT Secretary and CEO. 

Project completion is scheduled for summer 2014.
