CANTON- NORWOOD- WESTWOOD- DEDHAM STREET/I-95 INTERCHANGE RECONSTRUCTION INCLUDING REHABILITATION/REPLACEMENT OF 5 BRIDGES
The Canton Street/Dedham Street project consists of the construction of an off-ramp from I-95 northbound to Dedham Street and improvements to the Dedham Street/Canton Street corridor. Within the approximately 4,000 linear feet between Kirby Drive and University Ave, the existing two lane Dedham Street/Canton St will be widened to provide two 11.5 foot travel lanes in each direction, 5 foot shoulders in each direction, and a 6 foot wide sidewalk will be constructed on the northern side of Dedham Street/Canton St, from Kirby Drive to the Canton St/University Ave intersection. This roadway reconstruction will require the bridges over AMTRAK and the Neponset River to be widened and the bridge over I-95 to be replaced. Traffic signal control will be installed at three locations: Dedham Street at the I-95 southbound on-ramp; Dedham Street at the proposed I-95 northbound off-ramp; and the Dedham Street/Shawmut Road intersection. These three intersections will operate as a coordinated signal system and will provide safe pedestrian crossing locations for the major potential sources of pedestrian trips.
