Overview of Agawam - Robinson Park Elementary School - Safe Routes to School (SRTS) project

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be published/hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Robinson Park Elementary School - Safe Routes to School (SRTS) project in Agawam, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Agawam (SRTS) project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed Maple Street SRTS project will improve safety for students and residents who walk and bike in the Maple Street corridor from Begley Street to Walnut Street, a direct connection to the Robinson Park Elementary School. A shared use path is proposed along the north side of Maple Street, from Begley Street to Bridge Street. East of Bridge Street, the shared use path transitions to the south side of Maple Street, terminating at the Walnut Street intersection. Three Rapid Flash Beacon pedestrian crossings are proposed along the corridor. ADA compliant pedestrian curb ramps will be constructed as needed. A raised intersection with 3-way stop control is proposed at the intersection of Bridge and Maple Streets.

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The city is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented at the hearing.

Project inquiries, written statements and other exhibits regarding the proposed undertaking may be submitted to Carrie E. Lavallee, P.E., Chief Engineer, via e-mail to MassDOTProjectMangement@dot.state.ma.us
