Overview of RAYNHAM - Resurfacing and Related Work on Route 138

The purpose of this meeting 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 meeting 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, continuing just north of the I-495 interchange to Robinson Street. The proposed improvements will enhance vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle safety at the Route 138/Carver Street and Route 138/Elm Street intersections. 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 will be provided in both directions along Route 138 and will generally consist of a 6’ bicycle lane separated from vehicular traffic by a 3’ buffer.

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 meeting.

Written views received by MassDOT subsequent to the date of this notice and up to five (5) days prior to the date of the meeting shall be displayed for public inspection and copying at the time and date listed above. Plans will be on display one-half hour before the meeting begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project. A project handout will be made available on the MassDOT website listed below.
