MassDOT today unveiled a new website to keep residents and businesses informed about the progress of the $39 million Route 24 Exit 8B federal stimulus project. The project is part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's Massachusetts Recovery Plan to secure the state's economic future.
The project will create a new interchange, Exit 8B, in Freetown between the existing exits 8 and 9. The new interchange will reduce congestion at exits 8 and 9 and on South Main Street while providing access to the new Fall River Executive Park.
Construction is expected to begin on or about April 27, 2010. MassDOT encourages all members of the public to visit the project website and to sign up for construction milestone email bursts. These emails will provide recipients with information regarding major construction events, particularly those that impact on driving conditions on Route 24. The website will include information about the progress of the project and photographs.
