Overview of Quincy - Intersection improvements at Willard Street and Ricciuti Drive
A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Intersection Improvements at Willard Street & Ricciuti Drive project in Quincy, MA.
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Intersection Improvements at Willard Street & Ricciuti Drive 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 the reconstruction of the intersection of Willard Street, Ricciuti Drive, and the I-93 Southbound Exit 8 Off-Ramp in Quincy, MA. The improvements proposed as part of this project will address the existing safety concerns and improve pedestrian and bicycle accommodations. The project begins on the I-93 off-ramp and extends approximately 910 feet to the existing rotary, just east of Douglas Street. Project limits also includes approximately 100 feet west on Ricciuti Drive and 800 feet north on Willard Street. Project includes signalization of the intersection of I-93 Southbound off-ramp/Willard Street and Ricciuti Drive and improvement to the lane geometry on the Willard Street approach. This project includes pavement milling and overlay, upgraded signing and striping, five-foot-wide on-street bike lanes, ADA-compliant curb ramps, and sidewalk/driveway reconstructions as needed. A Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) is also included at the northern limit of Willard Street to increase pedestrian safety.
A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The city of Quincy is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the hearing.
