Overview of Stoughton - Turnpike Street (Route 139) Reconstruction

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Turnpike Street Reconstruction project in Stoughton, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Turnpike Street (Route 139) Reconstruction project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The purpose of the project is to replace a segment of Turnpike Street which experiences chronic settling and longitudinal pavement cracking with a new pile-supported roadway constructed east of its current location. The new segment will be tied back into the existing roadway alignment at the Turnpike Street intersection with Pleasant Street and approximately 1,000 feet north of it. Some modifications to the intersection are proposed, including new traffic signals replacing the existing ones. The obsolete roadway segment will be removed and the area restored as a wetland. Pedestrian and bicycle accommodations consisting of generally 6-foot wide ADA-compliant sidewalks, and 5- to 7-foot wide buffered bike lanes will be provided on both sides of the street.

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

Project inquiries, written statements and other exhibits regarding the proposed undertaking may be submitted to Carrie E. Lavallee, P.E., Chief Engineer, via e-mail to MassDOTProjectManagement@dot.state.ma.us or via US Mail to Suite 7550, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116, Attention: Project Management, Project File No. 607214. Statements and exhibits intended for inclusion in the public hearing transcript must be emailed or postmarked no later than ten (10) business days (14 calendar days) after the hearing is hosted on the MassDOT website listed below.
