It's a bumpy ride for Tewksbury residents driving on Route 38. But funding that is a part of the proposed transportation bond bill recently approved by the Massachusetts State Senate may be paving the way for a better commute.
During Tuesday night's Board of Selectmen meeting, the Lowell Sun reported that $10 million was added to the $13 billion transportation bill by Sen. Barry Finegold. The money is designed to upgrade the roads on a two-mile stretch of Route 38 that Tewksbury officials say is in need of desperate need of repairs and could be deterring businesses from opening their doors in town.
"It's a state road, and I can't understand why all these agencies can't figure out how to pave Route 38," said Selectman David Gay, according to the Lowell Sun report. "It's killing bringing business into this town."
