The purpose of this project is to improve vehicular and pedestrian safety and improve traffic operations through the project corridor. The project involves the reconstruction of approximately 1,700 meters (1.0 mile) of Allen Road, beginning just south of the Allen Road/Webb Brook Road intersection and extending to the Boston Road (Route 3A)/Allen Road intersection. A second phase of the project includes the reconstruction of approximately 400 meters (0.25 mile) of Boston Road (Route 3A) at its intersection with Allen Road. The project locus map is shown below.
The project includes roadway reconstruction, horizontal and vertical geometry improvements for improved sight distances along the corridor, and drainage improvements. A sidewalk will be constructed for the entire project length on the south side of the roadway. A new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection with Boston Road (Route 3A) and Allen Road. The project also includes a new water main on Boston Road (Route 3A) and new sewer main on Allen Road in advance of the neighborhood sewer project planned as Needs Area 4 in the Town's master plan for sewerage.
