A pillar of Patrick’s transportation overhaul is promoting greener commuting. MassDOT, in its travel plan, suggests adding or expanding trails in several communities, though does not specifically mention the Trunkline Trail.
"These projects were included in this transportation piece because there is a growing recognition that it is no longer just about vehicular transportation," Lambert said.
He added that a fully developed Trunkline Trail would improve the value of the six communities it wends through.
"Particularly in Franklin," he said, "(because) Franklin is a community that’s growing. Investments like these are a choice for growth. And employers and families looking to settle in Massachusetts are looking for some of these quality-of-life enhancements that aren’t easily replicated anywhere else."

The National Weather Service (NWS) will be conducting a severe weather spotter training session, part of its SKYWARN program, in Franklin MA
The class will be on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 between 6:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. It will be held at the Franklin Public Library, at 118 Main Street.

In his budget for FY 2014, the Governor proposed significant new investments in Early Education & Care, K-12 Education, Higher Education, and Transportation. To fund these investments--and avoid cuts to other vital public services--the Governor's budget also includes a detailed plan to raise new revenue. As part of our ongoing analysis of the Governor's plan, MassBudget is releasing two new budget briefs.
The first, "Investments and Revenue in the Governor's Budget," presents a concise, 2-page overview of key initiatives in the budget proposal. Notably:

Next comes the metal decking for the roof, and then masons will arrive to place the brick and outside walls.
Project officials have projected the next phase of construction to start in August.
"The schedule has us being roof-tight for next winter," Mercer said, "which means the outside masonry work would all be done, (and) the roof would be done, so the crews can work through the winter inside."
