Massachusetts Avenue Intersection Safety Improvements
BSC Group provided professional consulting services for improvements along Massachusetts Avenue from Pleasant Street to Marrett Road, a distance of approximately 3,500 feet. Improvements included roadway reconstruction, traffic signal upgrades, and implementation of separated bicycle lanes along both sides of the roadway. In addition to providing vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian safety along this heavily traveled corridor, the project provides a new connection to the Minuteman Bikeway from Maple Street. BSC played a major role in addressing several project issues including pedestrian and bicycle safety, bicycle accommodation, gaining public support, and sensitivity to historic requirements as the entire length of the project falls within the East Lexington Historic District.
