Route79 studyareaMassDOT will hold a public informational meeting to discuss a study it is conducting of the Route 79/Davol Street Corridor in Fall River between Cedar Street and the new Veteran’s Memorial Bridge.

The meeting is as follows:

Thursday, March 21, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., Fall River Heritage State Park, Visitors Center

This transportation planning study will examine how to improve connectivity within the corridor. It will seek to balance transportation needs of local and regional residents while supporting economic development opportunities.

The study will result in recommendations that are intended to benefit motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit and access to the new South Coast Rail service.  The study is expected to be complete by the end of 2013.

This is the first of two informational meetings that will provide the general public with an opportunity to learn about MassDOT’s conceptual planning study process, and for MassDOT to introduce the goals and objectives of the study and to solicit input.  There will also be a presentation of the analysis of existing and future no-build conditions completed to-date in cooperation with a group of stakeholders as well as a summary of identified problems, constraints, and opportunities in the study area.
