Bedford Street at Winter Street, Bridgewater
The Town of Bridgewater identified the Bedford Street/Winter Street intersection as a high-accident location within the community. The Route 18/28 corridor serves as the gateway into Bridgewater for students of Bridgewater State College, the largest state college in Massachusetts. Unrestricted access to the commercial property at this key intersection, just north of the MCI Bridgewater correctional facility, further complicated operations and safety.
The Town contracted HSH to design improvements to solve these worsening safety, congestion, and access issues. We developed a functional design report and conceptual plan to remedy these conditions. As the final plans developed, HSH successfully advanced the funding for construction. The project is now complete.
