Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray today joined state and local officials for the groundbreaking ceremony for Phase One of infrastructure improvements to the Town of Randolph's Crawford Square District, and awarded Randolph a $1 million MassWorks Infrastructure Program grant to complete Phase Two of the project.
In 2007, the Patrick-Murray Administration awarded the Town of Randolph a $1.365 million grant for Phase One of the Crawford Square District improvement project. Today's groundbreaking kicks off construction that will help the town make roadway, traffic, and streetscape improvements in the District, the primary commercial and civic center for the town. Two bus routes also pass through this district, located less than one mile from the Holbrook/Randolph Commuter Rail Station. The work will reconstruct the business district area from Stetson Hall to Warren Street (Route 139), including roadway improvements, sidewalk construction for enhanced pedestrian walkways and crossings, and streetscape improvements such as trees, benches, trash receptacles, planters, decorative lighting and landscape enhancements.
Lt. Governor Murray also announced a $1 million MassWorks grant today that will fund Phase Two of the Crawford Business District project. When completed, the project will improve the function, safety and appearance of the area, boosting the economic vitality and commercial success of the downtown.
The Patrick-Murray Administration this year launched the MassWorks Infrastructure Program as a one-stop shop for municipalities seeking public infrastructure funding. The program consolidates six existing infrastructure programs supporting job creation and economic development to provide increased efficiency, service, and communication when cities and towns apply for infrastructure grants. This approach reduces duplication and improves accountability.
