A Virtual Design Public Hearing will be published on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed RESURFACING AND INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS ON LONGMEADOW STREET (ROUTE 5) AND CONVERSE STREET (0.84 MILES) project in Longmeadow-Springfield, MA.
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed RESURFACING AND INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS ON LONGMEADOW STREET (ROUTE 5) AND CONVERSE STREET 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 intersection improvements at the intersections of Converse Street and Laurel Street, Converse Street and Longmeadow Street and Longmeadow Street and Forest Glen Road/Western Drive. Improvements will include new and improved turn lanes, and traffic signal reconstruction. Work will also consist of new signage and pavement markings.
