Salem Lynn Route 107 Study LogoPublic Information Meetings for the Route 107 Corridor Study have been scheduled as follows:

Wednesday, September 7, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, Lynn English High School, Auditorium, 50 Goodridge Street
Tuesday, September 13, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, Collins Middle School, Auditorium, 29 Highland Avenue, Salem

The same information will be presented at each meeting, so attendees may choose the most convenient date or location.

MassDOT in coordination with the Cities of Salem and Lynn, is conducting the Route 107 Corridor Study. This study will evaluate improvements to address existing issues and mitigate potential future impacts from new retail development along Route 107 from Boston Street in Salem to Chestnut Street in Lynn. MassDOT will analyze intersections along the corridor to assess how well they operate (delays, queuing, traffic signal design, and other deficiencies) and potential ways to improve them. Of particular interest are the intersections at Marlborough Road/Traders Way and Swampscott Road in Salem. These intersections experience heavy turning volumes and shifting of traffic, resulting in delays and operational inefficiencies. A plan for future transportation improvements (short-term, medium-term, and long-term), based on an alternatives analysis, will be the end result of this project.

Please see the Documents tab for more information from the Public Information Meeting and past Working Group meetings. To receive project information and hear about upcoming meetings, please sign up to receive email updates.

For questions or comments related to the study, please contact, Michael Clark, Route 107 Corridor Study Project Manager, (857) 368-9800
