Sen. Lesser votes to approve $200 million for road repairs

BOSTON--Sen. Eric Lesser voted Wed. to approve $200 million in funding for road repair projects throughout the Commonwealth.

"These funds will allow cities and towns to make desperately needed improvements to our pothole-laden roads," Lesser said.

Paired with the additional $130 million Gov. Baker has already authorized, the approval represents a total of $330 million in Ch. 90 funds that will soon be available to cities and towns as they jumpstart road repair projects this spring.

To report a pothole or other road condition, residents should contact their local municipality. Links to all municipal websites in the First Hampden and Hampshire district can be found at
