Background

The Traffic & Sidewalk Committee and Select Board have held a series of public information meetings since 2014 for the purpose of soliciting public feedback on the intersection improvements at Route 20 / Boston Post Road / Wellesley Street. This is following the intersection study, which was conducted in 2013.

The 2018 Annual Town Meeting approved funds to advance the project to the 25% design phase. The Town Engineer and Traffic & Sidewalk Committee worked with abutters and VHB Engineering to develop the plans for submission.

The Traffic & Sidewalk Committee and the Town Engineer presented the preferred 25% design plan to the Select Board on January 21, 2020, which was approved for submission to the state to petition for the TIP.
