—- — A $12.7 billion transportation bond bill signed by Gov. Deval Patrick last week could provide up to $35.5 million for projects in Haverhill — the most of any community in the area.

The bill, which received overwhelming legislative support, authorizes the state to borrow money for the rehabilitation and repair of the Basiliere Bridge, the redevelopment of the Merrimack Street Garage and the continued planning and construction of the Bradford Rail Trail.

The $3.1 million authorized for Methuen targets these projects: $1.5 million for the repaving of Merrimack Street; $1 million for design and public safety improvements of the intersection of Burnham Road and Routes 110 and 113; $500,000 for survey, design and improvements to the Methuen Rail Trail; and $100,000 for the planning and upgrade of traffic signals at the intersection of Route 113 and Tyler Street.
