Governor Deval Patrick today joined local leaders to announce that the reconstruction of Route 139 in Marshfield is moving forward.
The $5.6 million project will reconstruct Route 139 (Plain Street) from School Street to Furnace Street, providing two travel lanes in each direction and a new traffic signal system at the busy Enterprise Drive intersection with Route 139, along with new sidewalks and bicycle-accommodating roadway shoulders. The project is scheduled to be advertised for bid in 2011.
"This is a timely and much-needed investment in the busy Route 139 commercial corridor that will create jobs while improving the economic development of the area," said Governor Patrick.
The statewide road and bridge program combined with the eight-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program and federal stimulus funds have more than doubled the Commonwealth's investment in roads and bridges from $515 million in FY2007 to a projected $1.085 million in FY2010.The combined road and bridge construction program will support more than 10,000 jobs on 385 separate projects across the Commonwealth.
