State awards Beverly $500,000 for Brimbal Avenue Interchange Improvement Project

Beverly will receive a $500,000 grant to support the design and permitting for the first phase of a major road project off of Route 128. Beverly Mayor William Scanlon said the planned Brimbal Avenue Interchange Project will include widening a section of Brimbal Avenue and building a connector road between Brimbal Avenue and Sohier Road. Scanlon said the first phase of the project would cost more than $5 million. Scanlon said the city has yet to hear from the state about any further subsidy for the project.
