NOTICE OF A PUBLIC HEARING
Project File No. 608142
A Design Public Hearing will be held by MassDOT to discuss the proposed construction of a Shared Use Path along Beach Road project in Oak Bluffs, MA.
WHERE: Oak Bluffs Public Library

WHEN: Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 @ 6:00 PM
PURPOSE: The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Construction of a Shared Use Path along Beach Road from Lagoon Pond Bridge to Eastville Ave./County Road project. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
PROPOSAL: The proposed project consists of construction of a shared use path extending approximately 0.75 miles along Beach Road in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts. The project limits are from the existing shared use
path (SUP) at the MassDOT Lagoon Pond Drawbridge bridge replacement project (MassDOT
Project #604029) to the west, along Beach Road onto Eastville Avenue, and to the intersection of
Eastville Avenue / County Road where it will connect to an existing shared use path. The proposed improvements will enhance vehicular and pedestrian safety, provide bicycle accommodations, provide compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, and improve vehicular traffic safety by including “Complete Streets” design principles. Bicycle accommodations consisting of an 8’ – 10’ shared use path have been provided in accordance with applicable design guides. A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be discussed at this hearing.
