MassDOT is conducting a study of the I-95 South transportation corridor and will seek public input on proposed alternatives for future scheduled transportation improvements.

MassDOT has been working with a study advisory group to develop and analyze a full range of alternatives, including interchange, highway, and local roadway improvements as well as multimodal options for transit and bicycle/pedestrian access.
