Governor Authorizes $200 Million in Chapter 90 Transportation Funding to Cities and Towns
BOSTON — Gov. Charlie Baker signed a bill authorizing $200 million in Chapter 90 transportation funds to support all 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts. Since taking office in 2015, the Baker-Polito administration has awarded a total of $1.14 billion through the Chapter 90 formula.
“Chapter 90 funding provides cities and towns with critical resources to carry out important projects like highway construction and road paving to improve local infrastructure in communities across Massachusetts,” Baker said. “We thank the Legislature for working with our administration to pass this bill and continue our support for local officials this construction season.”
Added Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, “investing in local infrastructure helps improve travel for residents and connect them to economic opportunities. Providing consistent Chapter 90 funding is one of the many ways in which our administration continues to serve as a reliable partner to all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth.”
