Worcester secures $3.6M in streetscape funds


Two of Worcester’s major thoroughfares -- including one of its main commercial corridors of Shrewsbury Street -- will get major improvements in 2016, the city announced Monday.

The city will be putting out to bid a roughly $3.6 million repaving project for the entirety of Shrewsbury Street and a large portion of Hamilton Street this month. The project will be funded using CSX mitigation funds, according to City Manager Edward Augustus, Jr. Work is expected to begin in April and end in the fall.

In the last year the city has put $21.5 million into streets and sidewalks, according to Augustus, and the city is planning a $7.5 million project to reshape Main Street in the heart of the city.
