(Springfield, MA) — State transportation officials have unveiled plans for a 260-million-dollar repair of the I-91 viaduct as it moves through Springfield. A crowd gathered Tuesday at the Basketball Hall of Fame to hear about it. Officials say the project could go out to bid in November and take three years to complete.
