Massachusetts breaks ground on Attleboro’s Riverfront Drive

Posted:

ATTLEBORO – Massachusetts officials last week broke ground on the Riverfront Drive Project in Attleboro, a new roadway that will provide a “critical connection” to the Greater Attleboro Regional Transit Authority Intermodal Center.

According to a statement from Gov. Deval L. Patrick’s office, the public-infrastructure project will also unlock several development-ready lots suitable for the construction of more than 250 multifamily residential housing units and approximately 20,000 square feet of commercial space.

Last year, Patrick announced more than $3.9 million in funding for Attleboro through the MassWorks Infrastructure Grant Program to support revitalization of the downtown area and Riverfront Drive, the 1,930-foot roadway that will connect Wall Street with Olive Street.

The MassWorks project supports Renaissance Station, a mixed-use, 80-unit private development project to be completed in 2015. That project is expected to cost $11.25 million.

Opened in 2013, the Intermodal Center included redevelopment of abandoned properties surrounding the site, improved access to transit parking and the busway, design and construction of a new busway, shelter and associated amenities to enhance customer connection between rail and local bus service. •
