The Town of Cohasset Public Works and Engineering Departments are seeking to make traffic safety and efficiency improvements to the northern portion of the Route 3A (Chief Justice Cushing Highway) corridor, which is a vital arterial for residents and businesses of Cohasset and the local region. We are soliciting public input at this early stage to help refine the goals and develop the priorities for the project to ensure that it best meets the needs of abutters, residents, business owners and other stakeholders. The project limits will extend approximately 1.0 mile, from the Cohasset MBTA Rail station to King Street (south)/Cohasset Plaza. The improvements will consider new intersection control and/or upgrades at all major intersections along the corridor. To be eligible for State and Federal funding, the project must incorporate accommodations for all users and various modes of transportation, including vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit riders. Successfully addressing the project goals while being sensitive to resident and abutter concerns will be key to the success of this project. We ask that you carefully consider and provide answers to the following questions to help guide the development of this project:
