The travel lanes will be reduced in the northern half of the project from 4 lanes to 3, which will include a center left turn lane. A new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Boston Road and Good Street. Two flashing pedestrian beacons will be installed at Heritage Road for the Marshall Middle School. The work will include Heritage Road from Boston Road to Mount Vernon Avenue and 600 feet of Good Street from Boston Road. Bicycle accommodations consisting of a 5’ bicycle lane or a shared use path will be provided in accordance with applicable design guides.

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required.
