New Bedford gets funds for Acushnet Avenue

Posted 5/26/14

NEW BEDFORD – Gov. Deval L. Patrick recently announced $1.19 million in additional funding for the city through the MassWorks Infrastructure Grant Program to help support the Acushnet Avenue Improvement Project.

This public infrastructure project is part of an overall effort to spur private investment and development in New Bedford’s Acushnet Avenue International Marketplace District. The marketplace serves as a gateway to the businesses along the Acushnet Avenue corridor, and also the historic mill and river-walk district of the Upper Harbor and the Riverside Landing development site.

According to a statement, the city intends to use these latest funds to catalyze local investment, support existing businesses along the commercial corridor and foster new business growth in the district. The funds will support street and sidewalk replacements, lighting, trees and seating, bike racks and bus shelters. It will also support the redevelopment of a long-vacant, city-owned parking lot into a pocket park. •
