Baker Files for $200 Million for Infrastructure Improvements Across MA

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

 

Governor Charlie Baker

Governor Charlie Baker has filed An Act Financing Improvements to Municipal Roads and Bridges authorizing $200 million in Chapter 90 transportation funds to support all 351 cities and towns throughout the state.

“Chapter 90 funding provides critical support for local officials who need to repair infrastructure in cities and towns across Massachusetts. Roads and bridges in good repair throughout the Commonwealth are an essential component of growing our state and regional economy, and we look forward to working with the Legislature to secure this funding before construction season begins,” said Baker.

This is the fourth year that the Baker-Polito Administration has filed for $200 million for Chapter 90 funds.

Chapter 90 Program

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s (MassDOT) Chapter 90 program reimburses cities and towns for costs incurred for eligible transportation projects.

Funding for each municipality is predetermined by a formula that includes factors such as population, road miles, and employment.

Cities and towns must submit receipts to the MassDOT Highway Division district in which they are located which verifies that the expenditures qualify for reimbursement under Chapter 90.

The Highway Districts, in turn, submit these receipts to the Department of Transportation’s Fiscal Department which facilitates the reimbursements to cities and towns.
