First Light Resort and Casino, Taunton
Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe
‘First Light’ is the name of the new destination resort and casino to be constructed by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe in Taunton, Massachusetts. For the City of Taunton, the development presents the opportunity to revitalize the community and stimulate the economy with the creation of thousands of jobs. First Light will offer visitors a fantastic destination with three hotels, numerous restaurants, a retail shopping center, entertainment venues, and a family water park, alongside a tastefully appointed casino.
To help move the development forward, we worked closely with the Tribe’s design, legal and permitting team to analyze existing traffic conditions and project impacts over 10-year and 20-year time frames. Our traffic team recommended a set of improvements at 24 locations within the City to mitigate project impacts, including improvement measures on Routes 24 and 140. We are now leading the design of these improvements with continued coordination with the City, the Wompanoag Tribe, and MassDOT.
