Overview   of Peabody - Design Public Hearing webinar and comment period

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Rehabilitation of Central Street project in Peabody, MA.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Rehabilitation of Central 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 repaving and replacing sidewalk along Central Street from Walnut Street to the intersection the Central Street, Endicott Street, Andover Street, and Pulaski Street intersection, and also Pulaski Street from this intersection to Buxton Lane. Improvements will include a 5-foot bicycle lane in each direction throughout the project, including buffered bicycle lanes, where possible, and an on-street parking lane along the west side of Central Street.

At Wilson Square, a 10-foot asphalt shared use path will be incorporated on Central Street and continue down Pulaski Street. Drainage improvements, including new drainage structures and drainage pipe will be added throughout the project corridor. The Central Street and Walnut Street traffic signal will receive updated signal timing.  The signal at Central Street and Warren Street will be replaced and include Tremont Street. Buxton Street, which is right before this intersection, will be realigned on to Pulaski Street to provide a safer entrance and more sight distance.

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