Overview of Lynn - Intersection improvements at two intersections on Broadway

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Intersection Improvements at Two Intersections on Broadway project in Lynn, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Intersection Improvements at Two Intersections on Broadway project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed project will reconstruct approximately 0.3 miles of Broadway, from Wyoma Square to Jenness Street. The project is intended to provide safety and operational improvements at two high crash clusters; the intersections of Broadway with Euclid Avenue and with Jenness Street. The project will generally include targeted safety improvements including replacement of outdated and non-MUTCD compliant traffic signals and other traffic control devices; reconstruction of sidewalks, crosswalks, and wheelchair ramps; addition of bicycle facilities; improvements to transit stops; and roadway resurfacing. The preliminary concept design includes signalizing the stop-controlled intersection of Broadway at Jenness Street. Bicycle accommodations consisting of a 7’ buffered bicycle lane have been 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 City of Lynn is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the hearing.
