Patrick_deval_764 Governor Deval Patrick today joined Congressman Barney Frank and local leaders in Middleborough to announce $2 million in design engineering and environmental review funds for the Rotary Replacement Project near the interchange of Route 44 and Interstate 495. The Governor also pledged that MassDOT working with local officials will explore short-term and longer-term options to ease traffic congestion at the rotary.

Because of ongoing traffic congestion, addressing the future of the rotary is a priority of local planning and economic development officials. The funds will support necessary updates in engineering and environmental plans first drawn up nearly 10 years ago, including required adjustments due to changes in environmental regulation. While the engineering and environmental review proceeds, MassDOT will work with local stakeholders to discuss short-term options for reducing congestion at this location.

Road and bridge projects are a 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.
