South Shore Towns Awarded Over $4.7 Million for Local Road Repairs

Boston, MA – In June, the Massachusetts State Senate passed a bill to approve the authorization of $350 million towards transportation needs in the Commonwealth, including $200 million for Chapter 90 funds, which provides cities and towns with a funding source for investments in local transportation-related projects, including road and bridge repairs.

This week, the first round of Chapter 90 funding for all 351 towns across Massachusetts was announced. Awards are divvied out to each municipality based on the local road mileage, employment, and population. The breakdown for the South Shore may be found below:

“The investment the state is making in local roadway repair positions our towns to make the updates they need so residents can travel safely and efficiently,” said State Senator Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “I’m excited to get these funds in the hands of our local officials so improvements can start as soon as possible.”


The legislation passed in June also authorized $150 million in grant-based programs that will assist municipalities with various transportation-related projects. This includes $30 million for the municipal small bridge repair program, $30 million for the Complete Streets grant program, $25 million for bus-related projects, $25 million for increased access to mass transit and commuter rail stations, and $40 million for pavement and surface area improvements to non-federally aided roadways.
