Boston Road (Route 3A) at Lexington Road & Glad Valley Drive Traffic and Safety Improvements - MassDOT TIP Project
The proposed project consists of improvements to traffic and safety for all users along Boston Road (Route 3A) from Tower Farm Road to 500 feet south of Lexington Road including the intersections of Boston Road with Lexington Road and Glad Valley Drive to approximately 0.5 miles. A new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Boston Road at Lexington Road and Glad Valley Drive along with the realignment of both Lexington Road and Glad Valley Drive to form two closely spaced signalized intersections, eliminating the existing skewed geometry. In addition, Boston Road southbound left turn lane and northbound right turn lane will be provided at the new signalized intersection, new accessible sidewalk on both sides of Boston Road, and a flashing pedestrian beacon will be installed at Tufts Lane for the pedestrian crossing. Bicycle accommodations consisting of either a 5’ bicycle lane with 3’painted buffer or an off-road shared use path will be provided in accordance with applicable design guides.
