MassDOT in partnership with the Cities of Salem and Lynn, is studying Route 107 (Highland/Western Avenue) between Chestnut Street in Lynn and Boston Street in Salem.

At the first public information meeting, the project team will introduce the study and provide an overview of the project purpose, coordination with the Working Group, and the work to date, including an assessment of existing and projected transportation conditions. The public is encouraged to attend to learn more about the study and provide feedback. Those who have not already done so can take an online survey to help MassDOT identify ways to make travel through Route 107 safer and more efficient.
