New Bedford, Taunton in line for MassWorks aid

Posted 11/28/11

BOSTON – The Patrick-Murray administration last week approved 23 new MassWorks Infrastructure Program grants to advance local development projects across the state, including in New Bedford and Taunton.

According to a news release, the grants will allow the state to partner with cities and towns to support housing developments, infrastructure investments, road safety and downtown-revitalization projects.

In New Bedford, a $1.2 million grant will aid roadway and streetscape improvements to provide pedestrian access to the Acushnet Avenue International Marketplace. According to the release, that project will revitalize downtown and stimulate small-business growth in one of the “most historical, culturally diverse areas of the city.” Counting the grant, the total MassWorks program investment in this project is $3.25 million.

In Taunton, a $149,360 grant will be used for construction of an access road to enable expansion of the Myles Standish Business Park, which is projected to create 466 jobs in the next phase of redevelopment. Including the recent grant, the total MassWorks program investment in this project is $3.14 million. •
