CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The MassDOT announced on Wednesday it has received more than $65.1 million in federal funding to invest various transportation infrastructure projects.
The money will enable the MassDOT to fully fund projects in the 2016 State Transportation Improvement Plan and advertise five additional projects, two of which are in western Massachusetts, totaling $14.6 million.
The two projects that are in western Massachusetts are:
- Resurfacing of Route 9 in Goshen, $4,058,138, ($3,246,510 in federal funding, $811,628 in state funding).
- Resurfacing of Route 67 in Palmer, $3,664,168, ($2,931,334 in federal funding, $732,834 in state funding).
Other projects are in Winchendon, Templeton and Marshfield.
The remaining finds will prepay some project obligations currently scheduled for next year, which will free up additional funding for projects in 2017.
