A Design Public Hearing will be held by MassDOT to discuss the proposed East Milton Square Reconstruction Project in Milton.
Neighbors! We all have strong opinions about traffic in the square. Now is your chance to hear what MassDOT is planning and to express your opinions and suggestions. Please plan on attending the MassDOT meeting in September.
The East Milton Neighborhood Association (EMNA) encourages all EMNA members and Milton neighbors to attend this public hearing and to express their opinion about the proposed parking lot over the 93 overpass.
The EMNA urges the town to expedite the installation of the timed lights and other features that are reported to increase vehicle and pedestrian safety in this area.
Also, the EMNA requests that the town conduct a traffic study of neighboring streets on both sides of the highway to identify, confirm, and advise solutions for known safety and traffic issues in this area.

The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed East Milton Square Reconstruction project. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
The proposed project consists of improvements to traffic flow and safety within East Milton Square as well as providing additional parking for local businesses using a portion of the existing landscaped deck. The proposed project will include minimum 10′ travel lanes, 5′ bike lanes, 8′ parking lanes, and 5.5′ sidewalks. The scope of work includes roadway and sidewalk reconstruction, bicycle accommodations, new ADA accessible ramps, new traffic signals, and a proposed parking lot within a portion of the bridge deck.
A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Town of Milton is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be discussed at this hearing.
