Massachusetts Route 24 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (352 words)
Route 24 is a freeway (though not up to Interstate Highway standards south of I-495) in Southeastern Massachusetts, linking Fall River with the Boston metropolitan area.
Route 24 is also known as the Fall River Expressway, and officially as the Amvets Highway.
Route 24 is currently 40 miles (65 km) in length with 20 exits.
Fall River Expressway (MA 24) (1641 words)
The idea of an Interstate designation along MA 24 is not a new one: in the 1970's, officials in Massachusetts and Rhode Island considered the MA 24-RI 24 Expressway corridor as a possible alignment for the canceled I-895.
The conversion of MA 24 to Interstate standards is estimated to cost approximately $300 million, and would have to be constructed within 12 years that such an agreement is made for the new Interstate designation.
Along the length of MA 24, bridges should be reconstructed, shoulders should be improved, and acceleration-deceleration lanes should be lengthened, as per the recommendations of the MHD and the SRPEDD.
