Mass. Lt. Gov. to celebrate Wachusett project
BOSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray, state and local officials will be celebrating the completion of a multi-million dollar project to enhance visitor experience at Wachusett Mountain State Reservation.
Murray will be joined by Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Rick Sullivan, Department of Conservation and Recreation Commissioner Ed Lambert and local officials for a Tuesday morning celebration at the Princeton, Mass. reservation.
DCR officials say the Wachusett Mountain State Reservation Parkway Rehabilitation and Summit Enhancement Project improves traffic circulation, public safety and accessibility for visitors of the state park.
Costing $8.4 million, the project features a newly reconfigured summit with an 80-foot-tall steel fire tower and 12-foot high public observation deck.
Wachusett Mountain is the highest peak in eastern and central Massachusetts.
