Local Bottleneck Reduction Program

Helps cities and towns address congestion related to bottleneck conditions on local roadways.

The Local Bottleneck Reduction Program was authorized by Governor Baker in the 2021 Transportation Bond Bill and is administered by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT). The Program seeks to fund innovative solutions to address local congestion bottlenecks at intersections to improve traffic. Project locations are proposed by municipalities and considered by MassDOT for funding through a competitive application process. Every municipality in the Commonwealth is eligible for this program. Selection is based primarily on bottleneck related congestion and delay metrics. Project implementation is conducted by a MassDOT contractor. Learn more about the program by viewing the links below.
