Redevelopment of the North Abington business district gets a boost today from a $1.67 million Public Works Economic Development (PWED) grant.  The grant supports an Abington project that will resurface the roadway, install a traffic signal at Routes 58 and 139, build a parking lot for nearby Arnold Park, and make sidewalk and streetscape improvements. 

The Patrick Administration directed a total of $8.6 million in PWED grants to projects in eight communities across the Commonwealth in the current round of grant funding.  PWED grants to municipalities target transportation infrastructure improvements that will spur economic development, job creation, smart growth and better pedestrian access. 

More about applying for PWED grants can be found here.
