Route 30 Reconstruction
Town of Weston
HSH is currently designing safety, multimodal, and operational improvements for the entire 3.7 mile length of Route 30, from Newton to Natick. This is a heavily traveled road for commuters and is in need of sidewalks and bicycle accommodations.
Working closely the Town, the Traffic & Sidewalk Committee (T&SC), the Board of Selectmen, and abutters to the project, HSH has developed a plan that will address the Complete Streets needs of the corridor. Central to the plan was a discussion comparing buffered bike lanes versus a shared use path. The project received unanimous support from the Board and the project has now advanced to the 25% design stage.
The proposed project includes:
- Full corridor improvements with new pavement (mill and overlay with areas of full depth);
- 10-foot shared use path that primarily runs along the south side of the road;
- New ADA ramps, signage, and pavement markings; and
- Geometric improvements at several intersections including new proposed traffic signals, as well as drainage improvements and environmental permitting at two intersections.
