Overview of Hingham - Route 3A, Summer Street, Rotary and Rockland Street corridor

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Route 3A, Summer Street, Rotary and Rockland Street corridor project in the Town of Hingham, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is for MassDOT and the Town of Hingham to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Route 3A, Summer Street, Rotary and Rockland Street corridor project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

This project includes safety and related improvements along Route 3A, Summer Street and Rockland Street from the intersection of Otis Street and Broad Cove Road south and east to the intersection of George Washington Boulevard and Rockland Street including the Hingham Rotary. The goal of this project is to improve the safety for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Specific improvements include: traffic signal and intersection improvements, redesign of the existing rotary to a modern roundabout, a permanent "road diet" on Summer Street between Martins Lane and the Rotary involving the elimination of one lane in each direction, new and reconstructed sidewalks, a 10-foot shared-use path with a buffer along the waterfront and landscaping.   

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