Union Avenue Roadway Improvements

Project Overview

The Union Avenue Roadway Improvements Project is a State Transportation Improvement Project (STIP) being conducted and managed by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. 

Proposed improvements include full depth pavement reconstruction, sidewalk reconstruction, traffic signal improvements, streetscape improvements, bicycle accommodation, warning and regulatory signage, and pavement markings.

The existing traffic signal at Mt. Wayte Avenue will be reconstructed and new traffic signals will be constructed at the Union Avenue intersections with Lincoln Street and Walnut Street.

Streetscape and ornamental lighting improvements will be constructed from the southerly beginning of the project up to the intersection with Lincoln Street. Minor roadway widening of less than 2 feet is proposed between Proctor Street and Lexington Street in order to provide a sufficient cross-section for travel lanes, bike lanes, and on-street parking.

Previously, water, sewer, and drainage improvements, known as the Union Avenue Utility Improvements Project were completed by the City from 2016 to 2020 in anticipation of this project.

PROJECT LIMITS

Work will occur on Union Avenue from Proctor Street to Main Street, with limited work on intersecting local roadways.  

Project Update - MAy 2022

E.T.&L. continues working on installing the drainage in the vicinity of the intersection of Maple Street, Main Street, and Union Avenue. Coinciding with this drainage work will be the removal of the existing curbing and traffic islands within this intersection. Once completed, new traffic islands will be installed. 
 
Drainage work will then begin at the southern end of the project (near Proctor Street) and proceed north. This work will take up the majority of the spring season.
