Public Hearing Notice Medford - Shared Use Path Connection At the Route 28/Wellington Underpass
Overview of Medford - Shared Use Path Connection At the Route 28/Wellington Underpass
A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Shared Use Path Connection at the Route 28/Wellington Underpass in Medford, MA.
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Shared Use Path Connection and Wellington Underpass. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
The project proposes to construct a shared use path connection and new pedestrian and bicycle underpass to connect the northbound and southbound sides of the Fells Parkway along the Mystic River in the City of Medford, Massachusetts. The purpose of this project is to improve multi-modal accommodations and pedestrian safety by connecting a transportation network gap between MacDonald Park and Station Landing. Proposed improvements include the construction of a hot mix asphalt shared use path, cement concrete sidewalks, a timber boardwalk structure with overlooks, pathway lighting, signs, pavement markings, landscaping, and amenities.
A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The City and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) are responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands (depending on parcel). MassDOT’s and the City’s policies concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the hearing.

Lavallee, P.E., Chief Engineer, via e-mail to MassDOTProjectManagement@dot.state.ma.us or via US Mail to Suite 6340, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116, Attention: Project Management, Project File No. 611982.
