—- — 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.

Successful trailside cleanup!

trailclean
Last Friday, the MRTA  crew got out and took down the invasive shrubs and pulled out the debris that lines the hillside along the trail.

The neighbors along the trail have been putting in little gardens transforming the edge of the trail from something ugly into something productive. And the Methuen Rail Trail Alliance is helping out!

More group cleanups will be needed to remove the rest of the weed trees, oil barrels and tires that line the border of the trail, but eventually it will get there! Join us for the next group cleanup!
