Design Public Hearing: Route 30 Reconstruction Project
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), is hosting a Public Hearing regarding the proposed Route 30 Reconstruction Project in the Town of Weston, which includes safety and infrastructure improvements.
Design Public Hearing Details:
The hearing is available to all members of the public. The virtual hearing will occur Thursday, September 22, 2022 at 6:30 p.m.
Members of the public can access the meeting via the MassDOT Design Public Hearings webpage.
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed roadway project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
Project Information and History:
The proposed project consists of corridor improvements along the entire length of Route 30 within the Town of Weston, from the Natick town line to the intersection at Cutters Bluff (end of Town layout). The total project length is approximately 3.7 miles.
The proposed work will include a combination of resurfacing and box widening to achieve a standard pavement width including 11- foot travel lanes and 3-foot shoulders. A 10-foot Shared-Use Path (SUP) is proposed to run along the southern side of the Route 30 from the Natick town line to Newton Street where it will cross to the north side until the eastern project limits.
New traffic signals are proposed at the Winter Street and Oak Street intersections, and a pedestrian-emergency hybrid signal is proposed at the Ash Street intersection. The desired goal is to provide appropriate and safe bicycle and pedestrian accommodations while addressing system preservation of the roadway, through a context sensitive design.
