MassDOT Formal_LogoMassDOT has announced that it will hold a public information meeting for the Charlton/Oxford Route 20 Reconstruction Project as follows:

Wednesday, February 1, 7 p.m., Oxford High School Auditorium, 100 Carbuncle Drive

While emergency safety repairs were completed on this roadway in January of 2016, this long-term improvement project is being designed to further improve the geometry and safety conditions of the roadway as well as address traffic operations at the adjacent intersections. These improvements include the full-depth reconstruction and widening of the roadway to accommodate two 12-foot wide lanes with four-foot median shoulders and eight-foot curbside shoulders in each direction of travel. A median barrier separating opposing directions of travel is proposed throughout the entire project corridor.

The bridge carrying Route 20 over the Little River in Charlton will be rehabilitated and the bridge carrying Route 20 over the French River in Oxford will be replaced. Additional project improvements include bicycle and pedestrian accommodations, signage, pavement markings, guardrail, retaining walls, storm drainage and storm water management infrastructure.

MassDOT representatives will provide an update on the design of the reconstruction project and answer questions and gather comments and input from community members.

This meeting location is accessible to people with disabilities and individuals with limited English proficiency. If you need a reasonable accommodation (such as American Sign Language Interpreters, assistive listening devices, handouts in alternate formats, etc.) and/or language assistance (such as translated documents or an interpreter) to fully participate, please contact MassDOT’s Chief Diversity and Civil Rights Officer by phone (857-368-8580), fax (857-368-0602), TTD/TTY (857-368-0603) or by email (MassDOT.CivilRights@dot.state.ma.us).
