Fitchburg, Secretary Davey, Rindge Road Bridge, September 26, 2012MassDOT Secretary & CEO Richard A. Davey today joined Fitchburg Mayor Lisa A. Wong, state and local officials at the $1.1 million Rindge Road Improvement Project, funded through the Small Bottleneck Grant Program.

“MassDOT, on behalf of the Patrick-Murray Administration, is proud to partner with the community of Fitchburg on this important project. These kinds of smaller-scale investments are often overlooked but are incredibly important to communities,” said Secretary Davey.

The Fitchburg Rindge Road project extends 2.5 miles from Route 31 at the John Fitch Highway toward the Ashby town line. The project includes pavement reclamation and markings, drainage improvements, guardrail upgrades, and sidewalk resurfacing. Construction started in late August and is expected to wrap up by the end of October.

The City will be reimbursed through MassDOT's Small Bottleneck Grant Program once the roadway improvements are complete. The Small Bottleneck Program provides communities with funding and technical assistance to complete roadway improvement projects valued at or about $1 million that do not score high enough to qualify for federal funding but make significant improvements for the local economy, quality of life, safety and/or commute times.

Projects in Fitchburg, Sandwich, Westhampton and Newburyport received Small Bottleneck Grants in 2012.
