MassDOT is moving forward with the Route 79-Davol St Corridor Improvements Project in Fall River. As of Winter 2023, the project has moved into the Design-Build phase.
The construction project has reached the 75% design submittal and is beginning early construction activities.
Davol Street and Route 79 run along the Taunton Riverfront in Fall River. Currently, access between the neighborhoods and the waterfront is limited and the corridor lacks bicycle accommodations. MassDOT is redesigning the mile-long corridor to improve mobility, connectivity, and safety along and across Route 79 and Davol Street.
The preferred design has been chosen. Return to this website for project developments.
