Overview of HAVERHILL - Intersection Reconstruction on Route 108 (Newton Road) at Route 110 (Kenoza Avenue and Amesbury Road)

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Intersection Reconstruction on Route 108 (Newton Road) at Route 110 (Kenoza Avenue and Amesbury Road) project. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed project consists of realigning the existing intersection to form a more perpendicular configuration to improve safety. The intersection geometry will also be revised to improve the turning movements for trucks. Along Route 110 eastbound, both an exclusive left-turn lane and through lane will be provided. Sidewalks and dedicated bicycle lanes are proposed as part of the project which also includes a sidewalk connection to Winnekenni Park. Surplus pavement area at the intersection will be converted to grass area.

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