Lenox PWED

Governor Deval Patrick today announced that the Executive Office of Transportation has awarded a Public Works Economic Development (PWED) grant worth $950,000 for the Lenox Village Downtown Revitalization Project.  In this latest round of PWED funding, the Patrick Administration will direct a total of $8.6 million in infrastructure grants to projects in eight communities across the state.

This project will rehabilitate downtown Lenox infrastructure and revitalize the seven block area of Lenox Village.  Project elements will include new sidewalks, new pocket parks, new gateways to downtown entrances and new lighting. This PWED project will support the nearby roadway reconstruction project along West Street (Route 183), the roadway that links the Village to Tanglewood.  Improvements to West Street will include new sidewalks, new bicycle lanes and upgraded drainage. These two projects together are expected to create a much-improved gateway for Lenox and for Tanglewood, a critical component of the town and regional economy.

The Executive Office of Transportation provides PWED funding awards to municipalities for transportation infrastructure improvements that will spur economic development, job creation, smart growth and better pedestrian access. 

Infrastructure investments are key components of Governor Patrick's Massachusetts Recovery Plan.  Learn more
