Boston Route 203 Project - Public Meeting

The purpose of this public information meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with proposed Roadway Improvements along Route 203 from West Selden Street to Gallivan Boulevard. All views and comments made at the public information meeting will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

The proposed project will improve the safety and efficiency of Route 203 between West Selden Street and Gallivan Boulevard in the City of Boston. A new traffic signal will be introduced at the Morton Street and Gallivan Boulevard intersection along with minor curb-line modifications. Exclusive left turn lanes and protected turning phase will be provided along Route 203 at the West Selden intersection. Traffic signal interconnect will be implemented between Norfolk Street and Gallivan Boulevard. Accessibility compliant sidewalks and driveways will be constructed on both sides of Route 203, and designated bicycle lanes will be included within the project limits.

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be discussed at this meeting.

Written views received by MassDOT subsequent to the date of this notice and up to five (5) days prior to the date of the meeting shall be displayed for public inspection and copying at the time and date listed above. Plans will be on display one-half hour before the meeting begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project. A hearing handout is available on the MassDOT website.
