Rep. Dykema Votes for More Funding for Local Road Repair

By contributor,

Today, Rep. Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston) joined her House colleagues in voting to bring $200 million in additional funding to local communities for road and bridge repair. The funds, which will be distributed directly to towns through the state’s chapter 90 program, will result in $639,459 in additional funding for Hopkinton.

“Keeping our local roads in good shape is important to our economy and our quality of life,” said Dykema. “With local budgets stretched thin, these additional funds will help towns keep on top of needed upkeep.”
