Route 30 Reconstruction

The Route 30 corridor, from the Natick town line to the Newton town line, has not been updated since 2003. This is a heavily traveled road for commuters and is in need of sidewalks. Howard Stein Hudson, the engineers hired to conduct a study of this corridor for the Department of Public Works and the Traffic & Sidewalk Committee, recently presented its study, which can be viewed below. 

The study outlines a reconstruction of the roadway to accommodate a multimodal roadway, which would create a walkway on one side and create bicycle shoulders along the 3.7 mile stretch between town lines, as well as include the upgrade of the traffic signal at the fire station across from Ash Street.
