MARLBOROUGH – The city has received a MassWorks infrastructure grant of $2 million to fund an improvement project for Cedar Hill Street.
In a letter to the City Council, Mayor Arthur Vigeant thanked the state and local legislators for their support.
The street “serves as a vital regional connection at the interchange of Route 495,” he said.
The project will include the reconstruction of one mile of Cedar Hill; resurfacing of the entire length of the street; new sidewalks on Cedar Hill, and new sidewalks on 900 feet of Simarano Drive; new bike lanes on Cedar Hill and a new water main transmission line on the eastern section of Cedar Hill.
According to documents filed with the state’s Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, design and engineering were scheduled to be completed in February, with bids going out in April. Work is scheduled to start in June, with completion in June 2024.
The documents also stated that several commercial enterprises would benefit from the project, including Ken’s Foods at 1 D’Angelo Drive and MassContainer Corp. at 300 Cedar Hill St.; as well as the Green District housing development.
The council approved the grant during its March 27 meeting.
