Hull gets $400,000 in state grants to rebuild sidewalks

Hull will get nearly $400,000 in state money to rebuild sidewalks, add curb cuts, and create bike lanes on Nantasket Avenue from H to Q streets in the Alphabet section. The town was one of 22 communities sharing $7.8 million in state grants from the Department of Transportation’s Complete Streets program, which is designed to make travel easier for cars, pedestrians, and bicyclists. “Our administration is proud to fund these important infrastructure improvements that make our communities safer for families and the traveling public,” Governor Charlie Baker said in a written statement. Chris DiIorio, Hull’s director of community development and planning, said construction was scheduled to start in the spring, and would connect to similar work previously done from A to H streets. “This will be great for the people in that area,” he said, adding that making the sidewalks and crossings handicapped-accessible will be especially beneficial.
