Awards help upgrade roadways

LITTLETON -- Two $500,000 awards from the state will help expand operations and improve infrastructure for local businesses, the state Department of Transportation announced in a Monday press release.

The Middlesex Corporation will use one of the awards to construct new railroad track and restore the property’s siding, allowing the business to receive sand and stone shipments by rail instead of truck. As a result, approximately 12,800 truck trips will be eliminated from local roadways, state officials said.

The other award will go toward Patriot Beverage and Injection Molding Enterprises’ restoration of the former Very Fine bottling facility and expand the two companies’ manufacturing operation by facilitating delivery of materials by rail. The project will reduce 2,500 regional truck trips per year, and it will also support restoration of the bottling facility, which will employ 50 people once operational.

The awards are part of the state’s Industrial Rail Access Program. A total of about $1.8 million is being distributed in this round.
