HADLEY- RECONSTRUCTION ON ROUTE 9, FROM MIDDLE STREET TO MAPLE/SOUTH MAPLE STREET
The proposed roadway design widens Russell Street through full depth reconstruction to provide two travel lanes in each direction with a minimum lane width of 11 feet and a shoulder width of 4 feet. The proposed pavement width will vary from 52 to 82 feet wide curb-to-curb. The proposed shoulder width of 4 feet will be an improvement over the existing shoulders which are as narrow as 2 foot wide. The widening of the roadway from one travel lane in each direction to two travel lanes in each direction will add additional capacity and improved traffic progression. Other improvements to Russell Street include the following: increasing roadway vertical grades to improve surface drainage; upgrading the existing storm system drainage; new traffic signage; extending or replacing existing cross culverts; installing raised pavement markers; new granite curbs; new 6.5-foot wide concrete sidewalks along both sides of the roadway. The project starts at Station 157+49.38 (Lowe's Driveway)and ends at Station 189+10.94 (Home Depot/Mountain Farms Mall Driveway).
