Project Description:
The proposed project limits are from approximately 250 feet north of the Summer Street and John Fitch Highway intersection to just south of the Lunenburg Street and John Fitch Highway intersection. This totals approximately 1 mile of full depth reconstruction. The proposed cross section of the roadway will include 11 foot travel lanes with three foot shoulders. 10 foot separated HMA shared-use paths are proposed on both the east and west side of the roadway. Grass buffers and vegetated infiltration swales variable in width are proposed to reduce flood vulnerability. A dedicated right-turn lane is provided for the slip lane at Lunenburg Street and left-turn lanes are proposed at Upham Street. Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) are proposed at Woodbury Avenue and at the mid-block crossings along John Fitch Highway. Other improvements include new granite curb, stormwater bioretention cells, a new bus pullout and shelter, signs, markings, and tree plantings. The improvements in this project will help bring new business and improve bicycle and pedestrian connections in the City of Fitchburg.
