Proposed Main Street Traffic Improvements

The Town, in coordination with MassDOT, is planning improvements to Route 1A where it intersects Cherry Street, Monument Street, and Arbor Street which will include a redesign of the existing roadway by installing more/better signage, designated turning lanes at key locations, and up to two (2) fully signalized intersections.  This project will also include improvements to the existing sidewalks, the installation of new sidewalks, and the redesign/relocation of existing pedestrian crosswalks. 

Since Route 1A is a state road, MassDOT will be the project lead, but the Town has been and will continue to be actively involved in the design and decision making processes.  As we consider beginning preliminary design work, a public meeting was held Thursday, November 29, 2018 to inform our residents and downtown businesses about the purpose, goals, needs, and design parameters of the project. All input provided by relevant stakeholders is being considered as part of this public outreach process. 

The next meeting will be held:
