Rail Trail To Get A Facelift
Thu, 07/23/2020 - 4:40pm Heraldgroton
The Transportation Bond Bill passed by the Massachusetts State Senate on Thursday, July 16 included these amendments filed by Groton State Senator Edward Kennedy:
• $650,000 for paving and reconstruction of the Nashua River Rail Trail in Ayer, Groton, Pepperell, and Dunstable.
• $350,000 for improvements and repairs on Route 119 in Groton and
• $100,000 for improvements on Route 113 in Dunstable.
Another bonus for some Groton residents is that the Bond Bill also includes $100 million for construction of a new four-lane permanent replacement for Rourke Bridge in Lowell. The new bridge will reduce traffic congestion on the existing bridges across the Merrimack River, thus improving access to Lowell General Hospital. Additionally, the new bridge will bring many construction jobs to the Greater Lowell area.
