STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, SEPT. 26, 2018…..Seventy percent of Massachusetts voters think the state is not spending enough money on public infrastructure projects and roughly a third of voters rate the state’s local roads, highways, bridges and MBTA as “poor,” a recent poll found.
The results of a WBUR/MassINC poll conducted last week also revealed a lack of confidence in natural gas infrastructure and a drop in the public’s view of gas in the state’s energy mix in the fresh wake of gas explosions and fires in the Merrimack Valley.
The state’s electrical grid and water system fared the best among polled voters. Fifty percent of voters said the electric grid is good or excellent and 56 percent said the water system is good or excellent.
