Massachusetts Frees Up Millions For Pothole Repairs
After an incredibly snowy winter, potholes are popping up everywhere (popping down?). So is there relief in the future?
Governor Baker's administration announced on Thursday that the state is making $30 million available to cities and towns to aid in filling potholes and making other road and bridge repairs that may be necessary.
So how much of that $30 million will we actually see on the Southcoast?
The funds are being broken down by geographical size and population, so of course Boston is getting the bulk of the money.
Still New Bedford should see $318,000, Fall River's share is $285,000 and Taunton will receive about $213,000. Not too shabby.
So with this new influx of pothole repair money, what streets do you think need it the most?
