GREGOIRE SECURES $5 MILLION FOR I-495/290 INTERCHANGE IN TRANSPORTATION BOND BILL

(BOSTON) Representative Danielle Gregoire (D-Marlborough) and Representative Kate Hogan (D-Stow) successfully advocated for $5 million in funding for their district through an amendment to the Transportation Bond Bill.  This important amendment had the support of the 495/Metrowest Partnership, a public-private advocacy and development organization.

The allocation of this funding will further advance the permitting and design of the reconstruction of the I-290 and I-495 Interchange and bridge replacement in the Town of Hudson and the City of Marlborough.  “Over the years, commuters, municipal officials and transportation professionals have deemed the I-495 and I-290 Interchange as a regional priority for infrastructure funding and improved transportation planning,” said Representative Gregoire.  “This funding will allow us to address safety concerns, congestion needs and improve overall travel for our commuters.”

In addition to this funding, the $12 billion bond bill also authorizes $300 million for local road and bridge repairs for fiscal year 2015.  Bond discussions now move to the Senate where debate will continue.
