Overview   of Wilmington - Design Public Hearing webinar and comment period

A Virtual Design Public Hearing will be published on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed intersection improvements at Lowell Street (Route 129) and Woburn Street project in Wilmington, MA.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS AT LOWELL STREET (ROUTE 129) AND WOBURN STREET 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 constructing intersection improvements at Lowell Street (Route 129) and Woburn Street to reduce vehicular congestion and peak hour delays as well as improve multimodal safety and reduce vehicular crashes. The project would include upgrades to the existing traffic signal to provide modern equipment with increased visibility for all modes of transportation. Dedicated left turn lanes are proposed on all four approaches to the intersection. An additional right turn lane is proposed on the eastbound approach of Lowell Street. Bicycle lanes will be provided on all four approaches. New or rehabilitated sidewalk, ADA/AAB accessible ramps, crosswalks and pedestrian signal equipment is proposed on all four approaches to the intersection. Curbing and drainage improvements are included. Utility poles will be relocated and/or equipment consolidated. Mill and overlay of the pavement is anticipated within the project limits.

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