Governor Patrick Signs Bill to Improve Infrastructure
The administration is investing $1.5 billion in state, federal funds for roads, bridges, and rail projects.
Today Governor Deval Patrick signed the H. 4371, “An Act Financing Improvements to the Commonwealth’s Transportation System” bill.
The money will help maintain funding for transportation infrastructure projects across the Commonwealth. The bill will offer a total investment of $1.5 billion for Fiscal Year 2013.
Dedham and West Roxbury will receive "no less" than $1,000,000 for maintenance and improvements to the intersection of route 1, route 109, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Parkway and Spring Street.
“Our transportation infrastructure had suffered from years of neglect, so this Administration started rebuilding roads, rails and bridges in every corner of our state and creating thousands of jobs,” Governor Patrick said. “This is how we are strengthening our state’s economy and quality of life for the long term.”
