Overview of Holyoke - Traffic signal upgrades and related work along High & Maple Streets
A live virtual design public hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Traffic signal upgrades and related work along High & Maple Streets project in Holyoke, MA.
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed High & Maple Streets Traffic Signal Upgrades project. 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 traffic signal upgrades at 8 intersections along each of High and Maple Streets between (south of) Resnic Boulevard and Lyman Street (a distance of approximately one mile). The project also includes American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance access ramps at all intersections, and new signage, revisions to lane use, on-street parking and pavement markings for on-road bicycle facilities between the intersections and within the project limits. Bicycle accommodations consisting of one 5-foot wide bicycle lane (with 2 to 7 feet buffer) is typically provided (consistent with the one-way traffic direction) on each street 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. The city of Holyoke is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the hearing.
