TEC is honored to work with various towns throughout the region & we congratulate those awarded the MassWorks Grant. 101 applications were submitted requesting $245 million in public infrastructure grants. Grants were awarded to 49 projects in 46 communities, totaling $85.6 million.
The Town of Burlington, Gutierrez Company, and EMD Millipore were awarded a $2.25 Million Grant that will provide funding towards the construction of the Phase II Middlesex Turnpike – Route 3 Transportation Improvement Project. This project will further enhance transportation infrastructure along the Middlesex Turnpike from the I-95 Northbound Ramps to the Lexington town line. The project will support the Burlington Summit development at 400-600 Wheeler Road and adjacent sites to attract and retain high-end office, retail and restaurant tenants along the Middlesex/3 Corridor.
The Phase II improvements will build upon previous infrastructure improvements funded through the MassWorks Grant Program and designed by TEC in 2012/2013. TEC looks forward to continuing to provide Transportation Engineering and Construction Administration services to the Town of Burlington and The Gutierrez Company. Construction is scheduled to begin in the 2016 construction season.
Congratulations to the Towns of Methuen, Haverhill, Dracut, Amesbury, and Newburyport in receiving a MassWorks Infrastructure Program Grants to fund key infrastructure projects that support housing and economic development. Special thanks go out to the Baker Administration, Lt Governor Polito, Secretary Ash, and the MassWorks Program for recognizing and supporting the opportunities in our communities. TEC is proud to provide services to municipalities seeking these funds to strengthen their applications in this very competitive process.
The City of Lowell was awarded a $4.7 Million MassWorks Grant for infrastructure improvements to support the City’s Hamilton Canal District Project. The grant will fund construction that will include extending Broadway Street and new utility infrastructure into the northern half of the district bounded by the Merrimack and Pawtucket canals. The grant will spearhead the development of these parcels where the City has already received bids from Watermark, Genesis HealthCare, WinnCompanies, and Anchor Line Properties.
TEC is currently serving on the City’s design team providing bridge engineering services to rehabilitate the existing bridge over the Merrimack Canal to accommodate the planned development.
