Mass. Ave. schedule slips by 3 months

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation said last week that advertising for contractors to rebuild Mass. Ave. in East Arlington, which had been scheduled for March 1, would instead take place on June 10 this year.

The agency, in a February 14 letter to the Federal Highway Administration, cited no reason for the shift, but the state has been waiting for federal approval before going ahead.

The Town posted the letter on its Mass. Ave.–project web page on February 15, joining the earlier letter from Federal Highway to which the state letter is a reply.

The correspondence hints at points of disagreement between the two agencies that must be resolved before the project advances.

The state transportation agency is holding another public hearing on the plan at 7 pm February 26 at Town Hall.

I’m going to try to describe the issues raised in these letters in a future post.

    You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the paintings you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart. “Faith in the ability of a leader is of slight service unless it be united with faith in his justice.” by George Goethals.
