Linden, Bridge Streets Included in Rapid Recovery Road Program
Hamilton's DPW is repairing (milling and paving) roads on the following streets as part of the state's Winter Rapid Recovery Road Program: 

Linden Street, Goodhue Street, Miles River Road and Bridge Street are scheduled to have road work done beginning, Wednesday, June 4, at 7:30 am.   The work will begin on Linden Street. 

Starting with Linden Street, the work will continue Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., for the next three weeks. 

"The work is contingent upon weather conditions. Please expect delays during this process; we apologize in advance of any inconvenience this may cause."

Hamilton was apportioned $36,898 as part of the Winter Rapid Recovery Program (WRRP). As posted by the Department of Transportation, "The 2014 Pothole and Winter Recovery Program will support and accelerate the repair of potholes and other damage caused by the severe winter weather. The $40 million one-time program will assist all municipalities and MassDOT in performing necessary repairs on state and local roadways and facilities.

The $40 million program includes $30 million allocated to all municipalities according to the same Chapter 90 formula used to provide longer term local road and bridge project funds. MassDOT will receive $10 million to address the greater than normal winter damage to Interstate highways and other state roads."

The Pothole and Winter Recovery Program is funded through existing FY2014 authorizations available to the department prior to the expected passage of the Transportation Bond Bill and requires all work to be completed by September of 2014.
