installation of new traffic signal equipment that includes accessible pedestrian signal push buttons; roadway

resurfacing; new signs; and new pavement markings. All bicycle and pedestrian accommodations have

been provided in accordance with applicable design guides.

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary

easements may be required. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is responsible for acquiring all

needed rights in private or public lands.

MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be discussed at this meeting.
