massdot_highway_logoThe Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Board today approved a contract of approximately $18 million for roadway resurfacing on Route 2 in Lancaster, Harvard, and Littleton.

The project includes resurfacing 10.6 miles of roadway between I-190 and I-495 and six exit ramps in addition to the resurfacing of several bridges. Exit ramp resurfacing will be done on ramps and exits 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, and exit 40.

Construction for this project is scheduled to begin in summer 2019. Full beneficial use is expected to be reached in spring 2021 with the remainder of the contract expected to be completed in fall 2021.

“We are pleased that the MassDOT Board has approved this important resurfacing project,” said Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver. “It is vital that we continue to make targeted investments to repair and improve our transportation infrastructure so that it will continue to provide value for the Commonwealth.”

This contract is part of MassDOT’s Capital Investment Plan. MassDOT’s strategic Capital Investment Plan uses state and federal money to fund transportation investments across Massachusetts. These include all MassDOT highway and municipal projects, regional airports, rail and transit projects including the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and Regional Transit Authorities as well as the MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). Updated annually, the CIP uses a combination of public and stakeholder input with both objective and comparative evaluation of projects to select programs that will be funded over the next five fiscal years. The draft being finalized now focuses on Fiscal Years 2020 through 2024.
