MassDOT nixs Otis I-90 exit plan; Blandford sites still at tableMassLive #Back_MainOctober 10, 2019
LENOX — A MassDOT working group voted Wednesday to eliminate Algerie Road in Otis from consideration as a location for a new MassPike exit serving the Hilltowns between Westfield and Lee.
The exit at the maintenance faculty would cost $29.5 million and building one at the rest stop would cost $34 million, MassDOT said in study materials released Wednesday.
But even those Blandford locations and the entire concept of a new highway exit might be on life support given the deep and vociferous local opposition displayed Wednesday afternoon at a public meeting of the I-90 Interchange Study Group at the MassDOT District 1 headquarters in Lenox.
An open house and public meeting on the project is set for Thursday, Oct. 10, 6:30 to 9 p.m., at the Blandford Town Hall.
4/24/2019 – Blandford – This is North Street bridge, a possible location for a new highway exit on Massachusetts Turnpike (Interstate 90) between Exit 2 in Lee and Exit 3 in Westfield.
“No one in Boston is pushing to spend $30 million in Western Massachusetts,” Pignatelli, a longtime advocate for the exit, said.
Pignatelli and other members of the delegation including state Sen. Donald F. Humason, R-Westfield, got $300,000 for the planning study included in the 2018 state budget.
Pignatelli defended the expenditure to a hostile crowd Wednesday, saying people have been talking about building an exit for generations.
“Up until now, it was just talk,” Pignatelli said.
4/24/2019 – Blandford – This is Blandford Service Plaza on Interstate 90, a possible location for a new highway exit between Exit 2 in Lee and Exit 3 in Westfield.
Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
