Murray joins Obama for transportation signing

Posted 7/16/12

WASHINGTON – Mass. Lt. Gov. Timothy P. Murray joined President Barack Obama at the White House this month for the signing of the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 2012, legislation expected to create jobs in Massachusetts and across the country repairing the nation’s aging roads and bridges.

The new law authorizes $105 billion in funding for highway and transit programs through fiscal 2014. Of the $105 billion, Massachusetts will receive nearly $1.2 billion in federal highway funds over the next two years. Additionally, the state is expected to receive more than $345 million per year in transit funding compared to the approximately $300 million Massachusetts received this year.

Projects receiving funding in the state’s South Coast and southeastern Massachusetts are:

• Reconstruction of Route 44 in Plymouth.

• Construction of a ramp on I-195 at Faunce Corner Road in Dartmouth.

• Route 140/Route 6 Intersection Improvements in New Bedford.

• Reconstruction of Tiffany Street in Attleboro.

• Superstructure replacement on Meridian Street in Fall River.

“Gov. [Deval L.] Patrick and I have worked closely with our state legislature and congressional delegation to provide the tools and resources needed to create jobs and improve infrastructure in cities and towns across the commonwealth,” said Murray, who is chair-elect of the National Lieutenant Governors Association. “The passage and signing of the Surface Transportation Extension Act is critical to these efforts because it will fund substantial highway and transit projects in our communities.” •
