Lee Road Paving, September 23, 2010 The unified MassDOT team this month completed timely and critical improvements in the Berkshires along nearly one mile of Interstate 90 in Lee.

The milling and paving of 4,440 feet of roadway was completed on time and budget and represented a team effort- bringing together crews from the Auburn, Warren, Lee, and Blandford depots.  Congratulations to all crews for improving one of the Commonwealth's most important roadways to enhance safe and convenient travel. 

Additional paving in the Blandford area of the Berkshires is planned for the next few weeks, just one among dozens of critical road maintenance projects ongoing through the fall construction season in all MassDOT from the Berkshires to Boston.
