Pignatelli announces $4 million to Southern Berkshires through Chapter 90 legislation

Boston — Rep. William “Smitty” Pignatelli, D-Lenox, has announced that over $4 million has been allocated to the 4th Berkshire District by the state House of Representatives for road and bridge work, through H.4367, “An Act financing improvements to municipal roads and bridges,” which was passed favorably Thursday.

The bill authorizes $200 million in Chapter 90 transportation funds for road-related construction projects for municipalities in the Commonwealth. A total of $4,219,692 will be distributed among the towns of Alford, Becket, Egremont, Great Barrington, Lee, Lenox, Monterey, Mount Washington, New Marlborough, Otis, Richmond, Sandisfield, Stockbridge, Tyringham, Washington, Blandford, Russell and Tolland.

The Senate is scheduled to take up the bill this week.

    Woo hoo! I can tell you a few roads in New Marlborough and Sandisfield that really need some help! Thank you Smitty!

    This notice inadvertently left out Sheffield which is to receive about $357,000. I notified Smitty’s office and they apologized for the error.
