MassDOT will hold a design public hearing on Wednesday, June 19 at 6 p.m. to discuss the proposed reconstruction of Newton Street. The public is encouraged to attend.
A digital handout will a full project description can be found here.
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed resurfacing and related work on Route 116 (Newton Street) project in South Hadley. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
The proposed project consists of the reconstruction of Newton Street from Route 202 to just beyond the Kendrick Street intersection. The proposed reconstruction will include the milling and overlay of the existing roadway and reconstruction of the sidewalks along Newton Street, ADA compliant ramps, new crosswalks, and bicycle accommodations consisting of an on-road buffered bicycle lane along the majority of the corridor. At the intersection of Lyman Street, as well as at the entrance to the South Hadley High School, the bike lane will be constructed without the buffer to allow for construction of left turn lanes.
The meeting will be held in the Selectboard Meeting Room in town hall. Please use the Pleasant Street entrance to town hall.
Please submit any written statements regarding the proposed undertaking to Patricia A. Leavenworth, P.E., Chief Engineer, MassDOT, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02216, Attention: Roadway Project Management, Project File No. 608473
