Public Hearing Notice Harvard - Resurfacing and box widening on Ayer Road
Overview of Harvard - Resurfacing and box widening on Ayer Road
A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Resurfacing and Box Widening on Ayer Road, from Route 2 to the Ayer Town Line project in Harvard, MA.
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed resurfacing and box widening on Ayer Road, from Route 2 to the Ayer Town Line. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
The proposed project consists of improvements to approximately 1.7 miles of Ayer Road (Route 110/111) from the Route 2 interchange to the Harvard/Ayer town line. The proposed improvements consist of reconstructing Ayer Road to provide a consistent roadway width with 11-foot lanes and 4-foot shoulders, widening to provide a left turn lane at Gebo Lane, and realigning approximately 650 feet of Gebo Lane to form a standard 90-degree T-intersection to improve vehicular sight distances. A new shared use path will be constructed along the west side of Ayer Road throughout the project limits to provide safe and appropriate pedestrian and bicycle facilities. The shared use path will be 10-feet wide with a 3 to 5-foot buffer area.
A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Town is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. The Town’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the hearing.
