Legislature approves additional roadway funds

A close-out state budget passed by the legislature and recently approved by Gov. Baker contains additional roadway funds for our towns. Our district will receive an additional $110K, as follows: Duxbury: $53,837; Pembroke: $56,531, and Hanson: $32,174. These funds ,which are allocated based on community road miles, population and employment factors, provide direct assistance to our cities and towns for essential roadway repairs and projects. This latest round of funding is in addition to the regular annual Chapter 90 disbursement, which in our district this year totaled $1.4M.
