Legislature Approves Chapter 90 Funds

The Massachusetts
Legislature passed a bill authorizing $200 million for Chapter 90 funding to
help municipalities complete road, bridge and infrastructure improvement
projects. The bill also facilitates the financing of $1.5 billion for highway
projects and $200 million for rail projects at the Massachusetts Department of
Transportation.

“Not only will these
funds provide critical resources to cities and towns across the Commonwealth
and fortify larger regional transportation projects, they will create jobs and
spur economic growth,” said House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo (D-Winthrop). “These
investments support our vibrant economy by improving our transportation
infrastructure.”

“Each year, the Legislature invests in
Chapter 90 funding to help cities and towns across the Commonwealth with

critical improvements to roads, and I am once again proud to support this
legislation which will help cities like Revere,” said Rep. RoseLee Vincent
(D-Revere). “I thank Speaker DeLeo, Chairman Strauss, Boncore and the
entire Transportation Committee for their work in crafting this bill that
provides needed dollars to help municipalities with roadway infrastructure.”

“The Commonwealth’s roads, bridges and
arteries are our economy’s life blood,’ said Transportation Committee Chair
Senator Joseph Boncore (D-Winthrop). These appropriations approved today will
go a long way toward providing our municipalities with the financial resources
they need to ensure our infrastructure is building toward state of good
repair.”
