MassDOT will develop a new roadway design to reconfigure Route 79 and Davol Street in Fall River. The project will create opportunities to improve mobility, connectivity, and safety along and across the Route 79 and Davol Street corridor. The new design will:
- open up land opportunities for economic development
- improve neighborhood connections to the Taunton River waterfront and
- provide continuous accommodations for bicyclists and pedestrians
The preferred design will be chosen by June 2020.
