Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray today joined state and local officials to announce the expansion of the Rivers Edge Growth District to include City of Everett property and to announce a $2 million MassWorks Infrastructure Grant award to expand and improve Airforce Road.
The funds will rebuild Airforce Road, including sidewalks, lighting, and pedestrian crosswalks, and extend the road to provide access to the 7-acre City Park. The funding will also support the commercial redevelopment of Rivergreen Business Park. Rivergreen Business Park was formerly the site of General Electric and is the property to be added to the Rivers Edge Growth District.
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, each aimed at supporting job creation and economic development, to provide increased efficiency, service, and communication when cities and towns apply for infrastructure grants and resources. This approach has reduced duplication, improved accountability, and provided for the most effective management of state resources.
