Overview   of Lawrence - Proposed Marston St. and East Haverhill St. improvements

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Marston Street and East Haverhill Street Improvements project in Lawrence, MA.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed improvements on Marston Street and East Haverhill Street project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent practicable.


The proposed project consists of reconstruction and improvements to segments of Marston Street, and East Haverhill Street in Lawrence. The primary purpose of the project is to improve safety. The proposed improvements include the construction of enhanced bicycle and pedestrian accommodations including continuous 8’ cement concrete sidewalks and ADA compliant pedestrian curb ramps, and a 10’ cement concrete shared use path throughout the project area. The Parthum Elementary School is immediately adjacent to the intersection, and enhanced multi-modal accommodations will increase opportunities for school aged children to walk and / or bike to school safely from the surrounding neighborhoods. The proposed improvements also include the construction of a fully actuated traffic signal and geometric modifications to reduce conflict areas, minimize pedestrian crossing distances and increase vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle safety at the City’s gateway intersection.

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