Overview of WESTON - Boston Post Rd and Wellesley St intersection improvements

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed intersection improvements Boston Post Road (Route 20) @ Wellesley Street in Weston, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Weston Intersection Improvements Boston Post Road (Route 20) @ Wellesley Street project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed project consists of the installation of a new traffic signal system; geometric revisions to the intersection to reduce driver confusion; installation of buffered bicycle lanes; sidewalk reconstruction; new crosswalks; pavement mill / overlay; drainage modifications; and pavement markings/signage. These proposed improvements will address significant safety and crash related incidents documented in the previous Road Safety Audit and will enhance bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The project has gone through a significant planning process beginning in 2013 with interaction with various Town departments including the Town’s Traffic and Sidewalk Committee, Engineering and Department of Public Works. This planning process has informed the preliminary design and the Town's Select Board has endorsed this preliminary design.

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