September 22, 2022 at 6:30 p.m.

Overview of Weston - Reconstruction of Route 30

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Reconstruction of Route 30 project in Weston, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Reconstruction of Route 30 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 corridor improvements along Route 30 within the Town of Weston. The project limits include the entire length of Route 30 (South Avenue) from the Natick town line to the intersection at Cutters Bluff Rd (end of Town layout). The total project length is approximately 3.7 miles. The proposed work will include a combination of resurfacing and box widening to achieve a standard pavement width to include 11-foot travel lanes and 3-foot shoulders. A 10-foot Shared-Use Path (SUP) is proposed to run along the southern side of the roadway from the Natick town line to Newton Street where it will cross to the north side until the eastern project limits. The desired goal is to provide appropriate bicycle and pedestrian accommodations through a context sensitive design. This project also includes intersection improvements at Winter Street, Highland Street, Ash Street, Oak Street, Newton Street, and Park Road. New traffic signals are proposed at the Winter Street and Oak Street intersections, and a pedestrian hybrid signal is proposed at the Ash Street intersection. Drainage improvements include adjustments or new catch basins where the edge of pavement is shifting and the addition of water quality swales in isolated areas. New signage and striping will be provided throughout the entire project limits. Existing lighting will be maintained or relocated as needed based on relocations of utility poles.

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. The Town’s policy 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. 608954.
