Life Sciences in 495/MetroWest


On February 15, 2018, at a forum cohosted by Sunovion Pharmaceuticals, the Partnership released its latest resource highlighting the importance of the life sciences industry cluster to our regional economy as well as its impact on the Commonwealth's leadership in life sciences.  This strong life science presence in 495/MetroWest directly links the Commonwealth's two other life science hubs, namely Boston and Worcester. 

The forum featured a panel of distinguished guests discussing the importance of the life science sector and culture from state, regional, local and industry perspective.  We are grateful for the participation by Massachusetts Secretary of Housing & Economic Development Jay Ash, President & CEO of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) Travis McCready, President & CEO of Massachusetts Biotechnology Council Robert Coughlin, and Executive Director of the Marlborough Economic Development Corporation Meredith Harris.  The panel was moderated by the Partnership's Executive Director, Paul Matthews, following his presentation on the Partnership's findings on the life science impact on the 495/MetroWest Region.  See resource links below.

I-495/I-90 Interchange Improvements Project

The 495/MetroWest Partnership is pleased to inform you of a new MassDOT webpage dedicated to the I-495/I-90 Interchange Improvements Project. In addition to past advocacy and outreach outlined below, the Partnership has advocated for this Project for many years, most recently in our formal commentary on the FY18-22 Capital Investment Plan (CIP) for MassDOT.  The current MassDOT CIP includes over $220 Million for the Project as it continues to move forward.  

In the lead up to the current design contract, the Partnership hosted a series of meetings on the Project, given its importance to our region and its status as #6 on our 495/MetroWest Region's 2014 Top Ten Transportation Nightmares.  For your convenience, we have provided links to the Environmental Notification Form (ENF) for the project (filed March 2, 2015) as well as the MassDOT presentation from the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) Scoping Session on March 19, 2015.  Visit our Transportation Committee page for more details on our work on behalf of the 495/MetroWest region.
