The Patrick Administration has given formal approval to a $20 million resurfacing and enhancement of Route 128 from Wellesley to Waltham.

The project involves roadway resurfacing, a safety upgrade of the guardrail, drainage improvements, storm water management upgrade, installation of a median barrier, bridge deck resurfacing and replacement of pavement markings. The work spans a section of Route 128 (Interstate 95) from the Route 9 interchange in Wellesley to the Waltham City line.

“This project targets one of the busiest highways in the Commonwealth with comprehensive improvements that when complete will benefit thousands of commuters each day,” said Transportation Secretary Bernard Cohen.

“In addition to providing major travel and safety benefits, this project will divert roadway drainage from the Hobbs Brook Basin in Waltham,” said MassHighway Commissioner Luisa Paiewonsky. “MassHighway has designed a project that combines top-notch design with environmental stewardship.”

Work is under way during overnight hours on construction of water detention basins and drainage pipe along the roadside and on preparation for resurfacing.

The project is part of an interstate maintenance effort designed to improve pavement quality and overall safety.

The state’s contractor on the project is D. W. White Construction of Acushnet, Mass. Work is expected to be complete by summer 2010.
