A road more traveled

040414 rsRegion – After enduring a particularly harsh winter, the snow is finally melting. Although winter was tough on our collective psyche, it was even tougher on local roadways leaving in its wake a record number of potholes.

That's why legislators are hopeful that Gov. Deval Patrick will approve up to $300 million in funds to pave the roads across the commonwealth.

For the last few years legislators have been advocating for more Chapter 90 funds – the monies that pay for road maintenance – to be allotted to local communities.? Last year they requested the governor increase the funds from $200 million to $300 million but that proposal was not approved.

Local and state officials are now again presenting their case for more funds and hope that the evidence all around will speak for itself.
