Governor Foots Bill For Forest Park Road Update

The state of Massachusetts is paying for a major Springfield  public works project.  

Governor Charlie Baker and other state officials  announced during a visit to the city on Thursday that the commonwealth  will pick up a three-million-dollar tab to repair the Swan Pond Culvert  at the main entrance of Forest Park.  

The main entrance was closed this  past summer temporarily after the collapse of the 19th-century culvert,  which officials are concerned could cause the roadway to fail or be  washed out at some point.  

City officials expect to begin searching for  an engineering firm for the project soon.
