Transportation Funds for Two Town Projects

| January 31, 2014

Rep. Walter F. Timilty (D–Milton) announced additional transportation funds for Milton following last night’s 151-0 vote in favor of House Bill 3860.

In the Bill, money was dedicated to two projects in town: the $2.3 million complete reconstruction of Adams Street, from Granite Avenue to the Quincy line (including complete roadway reconstruction, sidewalk and curb replacement, improvement to pedestrian and handicapped access, signalization upgrades and coordination, and street-scaping) and a $200,000 bond was adopted, by way of Timilty’s Amendment #246, which will begin the process of equipping Milton’s fire vehicles and the traffic lights of 17 intersections throughout the town; resulting in automated light switches to allow easier access through intersections and improved response times.

“Transportation infrastructure is paramount in ensuring that business in Massachusetts functions as expected,” Timilty said.  “Funding these improvements to Milton’s infrastructure ensure that Milton’s streets will be as safe and as functional as possible.”
