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.

The overall goal of the study is to evaluate and address transportation issues in the I-95 corridor from Route 128 in Canton to the Rhode Island state line, including issues along Route 1 and I-495 from Route 1A in Wrentham to Route 140 in Mansfield.   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.

Public Information Meetings will be held on:

Tuesday, December 15th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
Attleboro High School Mini-Auditorium
100 Rathbun Willard Drive
Attleboro, MA 02703

Wednesday, December 16th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
Coakley Middle School Auditorium
1315 Washington Street
Norwood, MA 02062

A general summary presentation will take place at 6:45 pm, with the time before and after devoted to the various exhibits. The first meeting in Attleboro will primarily focus on the sections of I-95 and Route 1 south of I-495.  The second meeting in Norwood will primarily focus on the sections of I-95 and Route 1 north of I-495.
