Project Description:
BEDFORD- BILLERICA- MIDDLESEX TURNPIKE IMPROVEMENTS, FROM CROSBY DRIVE NORTH TO MANNING ROAD, INCLUDES RECONSTRUCTION OF B-04-006 (PHASE III)
The proposed roadway improvements begin 800 feet north of the Plank Street/Middlesex Turnpike/Crosby Drive intersection to approximately 900 feet north of Manning Road. On Lexington Road, approximately 550 feet on each approach to the Middlesex Turnpike. On Manning Road, approximately 550 feet on each approach to Middlesex Turnpike. The intersections that will be improved within this section are the Middlesex Turnpike/Oak Park intersection, the Middlesex Turnpike/900 Middlesex Turnpike drive intersection, the Middlesex Turnpike/Lexington Road intersection and the Middlesex Turnpike/Manning Road intersection. The traffic signal improvements at the Middlesex Turnpike/Albion Way intersection will be completed by others, and therefore are included in this scope of work. The proposed work includes two travel lanes in each direction with the addition of turning lanes for safety and signalized intersections, a median and landscaping. Reconstruction of the bridge over the Shawsheen River is included with this project.
