Sutton Route 146 Announcement, Governor Patrick, June 9,2010Governor Deval Patrick today announced the design of Route 146 improvements in Sutton is moving forward and will be completed by year's end with construction to begin in 2011. 

The improvements include turning lanes and traffic signal upgrades and will address the heavily-congested Route 146-Boston Road intersection just south of the Sutton-Millbury Town line.  

Route 146 is the major north/south link in the Blackstone Valley linking Worcester and Providence.  Route 146 provides access to the Massachusetts Turnpike, Route 290, Route 9, and Route 20. 

The estimated $6 million Sutton Route 146 construction project at Boston Road is in addition to the $7.7 million resurfacing project supported by federal stimulus American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds currently underway on Route 146. 

More than 385 road and bridge projects are ongoing across the Commonwealth this summer.  The Patrick-Murray Administration's investment in roads and bridges totals more than $1 billion and will support more than 10,000 jobs. The road and bridge projects are a part of the more than $4 billion infrastructure investments being made through the Administration's Massachusetts Works initiative that will put nearly 20,000 people to work across the Commonwealth this construction season.
