Overview of Littleton - Design Public Hearing Webinar

A Design Public Hearing Webinar will be published on the MassDOT website to present the design for the proposed Reconstruction of Foster St. project in Littleton, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing webinar is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Reconstruction of Foster St project. All views and comments submitted in response to the webinar will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed project consists of milling with box widening and resurfacing of Foster Street. The primary improvement on Foster street will be the installation of a new 10ft wide Shared Use Path on the north side of Foster Street, beginning at the intersection of Taylor Street extending easterly to the MBTA station and connecting to the existing Balsam Lane neighborhood sidewalk network. Associated work includes improvements to the closed drainage system, installation of granite and asphalt berm, advanced warning signs and pavement marking upgrades to the MBTA at grade crossing, pavement milling, and guardrail installations. Pedestrian flashing beacons are proposed at the project limit at Balsam Lane and at a midblock crosswalk at Medtronic (private driveway). 10ft wide Shared Use Path will also serve as bicycle accommodation provided 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 Town is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT's policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the webinar.

Written views received by MassDOT subsequent to the date of this notice and up to five (5) days prior to the date of the webinar, plans and a project handout will be made available on the MassDOT website listed below.
