Overview   of Rowley - Design Public Hearing webinar and comment period

A Pre-recorded Virtual Design Public Hearing will be published on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Safety Improvements at Route 1, Central and Glen Streets project in Rowley, MA.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Safety Improvements at Route 1, Central and Glen Streets 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 installing a new traffic control signal at the intersection of Route 1, Central Street, and Glen Street in Rowley. Left turns from Route 1 will operate with protected-only phasing and “no turn on red” restrictions will be implemented from Central Street and from Glen Street to prevent angle crashes. Improvements will also include pavement markings and signs. Pedestrians will be accommodated with striped crosswalks across all four intersection approaches, an exclusive signal phase, and countdown signal equipment. Sidewalks will be constructed along the south side of Central Street and both sides of Glen Street to the nearest driveways. Bicycle accommodations consisting of six-foot-wide shoulders along Route 1 will be provided and bicycle detection will be provided at all approaches to the traffic signal.

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.
