MIDDLEBORO — The construction project to reconfigure the increasingly problematic Middleboro rotary circle will likely commence in 2017, the state secretary of transportation revealed to a local gathering of political and economic leaders last Friday at the Boston Tavern.

During a luncheon meeting of state Sen. Marc Pacheco's Business and Economic Advisory Council, Secretary Richard A.

He was responding to a question from Allin Frawley, chairman of Middleboro's Board of Selectmen, who requested a specific "starting date" and "finishing date" from Secretary Davey.
