Route 109 funding rolls along

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 26, 2008 12:10 PM

The state’s Transportation Bond Bill is expected to include $300,000 toward a reevaluation of Medway’s current road system, particularly Route 109, State Representative Jim Vallee announced recently.

The Franklin Democrat, whose district includes Medway, said in a press released that the Southwest Area Planning Council has acknowledged Route 109 as a top regional priority, in part due to increasing commercial and business traffic on the vital thoroughfare.

“The new design of Route 109 is something the town of Medway has needed for some time and it is only right that they have the opportunity to do something about it now to help improve the safety of its travelers,” said Vallee, who also serves as assistant vice-chairman of the powerful House Committee on Ways and Means.
