September 9, 2015

REFERENCE: PUBLIC MEETING – TRAFFIC AND SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS ALONG Bridge street and three additional street intersections

Dear Resident/Business

The City is please to announce that it is seeking State and Federal funding toward providing safety and operational improvements for two separate transportation improvement projects. The City’s consultant, WorldTech Engineering, is assisting with the funding application process through MassDOT and wants to get your input on potential improvements. The two projects under consideration include:

  • Reconstruction of Bridge Street.

The project will provide roadway improvements to upgrade the physical condition, safety, and multimodal accommodations of Bridge Street from the Danvers line to the River Street intersection. In general, the project will provide roadway improvements to upgrade the physical condition, safety, and multimodal accommodations of Bridge Street from the Danvers line to the River Street intersection. The project is anticipated to include a new pavement design which will adequately support the volume traffic; ADA-compliant cement concrete sidewalks along the length of the roadway; and safety and operational improvements at key intersections.

  • Traffic and Safety Improvements for multiple intersections located including Cabot Street at Dodge Street, Cabot Street at Rantoul Street, and McKay at Balch Street.

The project will provide roadway improvements to upgrade the physical condition, safety, and traffic operations through these critical intersections along Route 1A and adjacent to the proposed middle school. The project is anticipated to include traffic signal improvements to reduce vehicle delays; ADA-compliant cement concrete sidewalks and improved pedestrian crossings; and multimodal accommodations through each intersection.

In order to advance the project, your input is needed! The City will be conducting a public workshop on Thursday, September 17, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall. This meeting is being held to provide area residents and businesses with an opportunity to become acquainted with the proposed project, discuss the project scope of work, and ask questions. This meeting will also provide representatives of the City and our design consultant with your input regarding local concerns and specific project matters.

We invite you to come and learn more about this important roadway improvement project. Your input is valued and welcomed.
