Overview of Harwich Elementary Safe Routes To School public informational meeting

A Live Virtual Public Informational Meeting will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Harwich Elementary Safe Routes To School project in Harwich, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Harwich Elementary Safe Routes To School project. All views and comments submitted in response to the meeting will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

This public meeting is the gauge the public’s input and support for one of the two alternatives that follow:

Constructing five (5)-foot-wide sidewalks (1) along the west side of Sisson Road between School House Drive and Main Street, (2) along the south side of Main Street between South Street and Sisson Road, and (3) along the east side of South Street between School House Drive and Main Street.

OR

Constructing eight (8)-foot-wide shared-use paths for pedestrian and bicyclist use (1) along the west side of Sisson Road between School House Drive and Main Street, (2) along the south side of Main Street between South Street and Sisson Road, and (3) along the east side of South Street between School House Drive and Main Street.

All curb ramps will be upgraded to be MAAB/ADA-compliant. Enhanced crosswalks with rectangular rapid flashing beacons will be installed where appropriate. The goal is to increase the proportion of students walking and biking to and from school by improving the safety and usability of the existing facilities. The proposed accommodations will also serve as a connection to the Cape Cod Rail Trail via Island Pond Road.

This meeting is accessible to people with disabilities. MassDOT provides reasonable accommodations and/or language assistance free of charge upon request (e.g interpreters in American Sign Language and languages other than English, live captioning, videos, assistive listening devices and alternate material formats), as available.
