A Design Public Hearing will be held by MassDOT to discuss the proposed rehabilitation & box widening on Route 140 (Worcester Road), from Patricia Road to the Princeton T.L project in Westminster, MA. The Public Hearing is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at 7:00PM in Room 205 of the Westminster Town Hall; located at 11 South Street, Westminster, MA 01473. The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed rehabilitation & box widening on Route 140 (Worcester Road), from Patricia Road to the Princeton T.L project. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
This project includes the reconstruction of Route 140 (Worcester Road) in the Town of Westminster from the Princeton Town Line to Patricia Road for a length of approximately 1.5 miles. The proposed improvements consist of full depth roadway reconstruction, horizontal and vertical alignment improvements; new drainage, guardrail and signage; and improvements to provide bicycle accommodations. The proposed improvements will increase roadway safety for all roadway users while balancing impacts to right-of-way (ROW), environmental resource areas and abutting properties.
