McGrath Highway Route 28MassDOT is currently conducting a study, "Grounding McGrath" to determine the future of the Route 28 Corridor.

As part of the study, a Healthy Transportation Compact collaboration includes a pilot Health Impact Assessment.

MassDOT is examining the benefits and impacts that would result from any changes to McGrath Highway on the corridor and other area roadways.  The study will also identify opportunities for new development parcels and/or park space, as well as ways to improve multimodal access for the region and adjacent neighborhoods. The study will recommend short, medium, and long-term improvement suggestions for the corridor.

Grant funding to conduct the assessment is provided by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health from The Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson and The Pew Charitable Trusts.
