MassDOT Formal_LogoMassDOT today announced it has received more than $65.1 million in federal funding to invest in various transportation infrastructure projects across the Commonwealth.

The money will enable MassDOT to fully fund projects in the 2016 State Transportation Improvement Plan and advertise five additional projects totaling $14.6 million.

The projects to be advertised include:

  • Resurfacing of Route 140 in Winchendon, $748,475, ($598,780 in federal funding, $149,695 in state funding).
  • Resurfacing of Route 68 in Templeton, $1,836,920, ($1,469,536 in federal funding, $367,384 in state funding).

The remaining funds will prepay some project obligations currently scheduled for next year, which will free up additional funding for projects in 2017.

“This new funding will allow MassDOT to make investments in key transportation infrastructure projects that will benefit drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists and keep the public moving toward their destinations,” said MassDOT CEO & Secretary of Transportation Stephanie Pollack. “It will also enable MassDOT to begin to improve the condition of large stretches of non-interstate pavement.”

MassDOT Highway Administrator Thomas J. Tinlin said, “I am excited to have additional resources to invest in key transportation infrastructure projects that will help drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists travel to and from their destinations. I would like to thank the Federal Highway Administrator for the funding and MassDOT staff for their cooperation to make the funding available.”
