Overview of North Andover - Route 114 Corridor Improvements - Virtual design public hearing

A Live Virtual 25% Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Route 114 Corridor Improvements project in North Andover, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Route 114 Corridor Improvements project.  All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed Route 114 corridor improvements project is a 2.2-mile roadway reconstruction between Waverly Road and Willow Street/Mill Road in North Andover.  The project work mainly includes roadway widening, geometry and traffic signal improvements at project area intersections, continuous sidewalks and bicycle accommodations that are separated from vehicular traffic (via a shared use path) along the full length of the Route 114 corridor.  In addition to roadway geometric improvements, seven existing traffic signals will be upgraded, and two additional intersections will become signal controlled (intersections of Route 114 at Royal Crest Drive/ Merrimack College and Hillside Road) for a total of 9 signalized intersections. Traffic signals within the project area will be interconnected and will utilize adaptive signal control which automatically adjusts signal operations to optimize traffic flow based on ‘real time’ vehicle demand data collected by the system.   The project also includes a culvert replacement,  drainage improvements, utility relocations and landscaping elements.

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

Project inquiries, written statements and other exhibits regarding the proposed undertaking may be submitted to Carrie E. Lavallee, P.E., Acting 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. 608095. Statements and exhibits intended for inclusion in the public hearing transcript must be emailed or postmarked no later than ten (10) business days after the hearing is posted to the MassDOT website listed below.
