A $300,000 capital funding allocation will support design of the planned reconstruction of Boston Road, a key commuter route and retail corridor.
Springfield Mayor Dominic Sarno along with Senator Gale Candaras made the announcement today in Springfield.
The $7.5 million project will rebuild 1.3 miles of Boston Road from Pasco Road in Springfield to Dumaine Street in Wilbraham. The project will involve repaving and expansion, including raised medians and turning lanes extended or modified as required to improve safety. New bus stop shelters, traffic signals and new sidewalks and accessible ramps are also included in the project.
Road and bridge projects are part of the more than $4 billion infrastructure investments being made as part of the Administration's Massachusetts Works initiative putting nearly 20,000 people to work across the Commonwealth this construction season.
