Overview of RAYNHAM - proposed resurfacing and related work on Route 138

A Design Public Hearing will be held by MassDOT to discuss the proposed resurfacing and related work on Route 138 project in Raynham, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Resurfacing and Related Work on Route 138 project. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed project consists of the reconstruction of Route 138 (Broadway) from approximately 300 feet north of King Philip Street to just south of the I-495 ramps. The proposed improvements will enhance vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle safety at the Route 138/Carver Street intersection. New sidewalks will be constructed along the corridor on both sides of the roadway in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Bicycle accommodations consisting of a 5' (minimum) bicycle lane will be provided in both directions along Route 138 in accordance with design standards.

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 discussed at this hearing.
