Announcements: Coming soon, street intersection improvements

Title

Coming soon, street intersection improvements

Body

 

Low Cost Intersection Improvements
 
The Federal Highway Administration, FHwA, through the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, MassDOT, will be making some low cost intersection improvements in North Reading.  The intent of these improvements is to improve stop-controlled intersections where a high number of crashes have occurred.  The improvements, where practical and feasible, will include the following:

 

Doubled up (left and right) oversize, advance intersection warning signs with street name sign plaques, on the mainline, uncontrolled approaches.

Doubled up (left and right) oversize, advance “stop ahead” intersection warning signs on the stop controlled approaches.
Doubled up (left and right) oversize “stop” signs
Properly placed stop bar(s)
Removal of any foliage or parking that limits sight obstructions
Double arrow warning signs at the stem of T intersections
 
The locations identified in North Reading for these improvements are:
  North Street and Central Street
  Park Street and Central Street
  Chestnut Street and Haverhill Street
 
All work will be done by Highway Safety, Inc., under the direction of MassDOT.  All work is currently planned to commence on Thursday June 20, 2013.  For questions, contact Michael P. Soraghan, PE, Town Engineer at 978-357-5226 or msoraghan@northreadingma.gov.
