The Massachusetts Department of Transportation will make improvements to four intersections in Salisbury, after soliciting bids for the project last month, State Representative Michael A. Costello and State Senator Kathleen O’Connor Ives announced.
The work includes conduit, traffic control signal systems, pavement marking, and other incidental work at the following four major intersection locations:
• Toll Road at Main Street
• Main Street at High Street/Rabbit Road
• Toll Road at Pike Street (Route 286)
• Lafayette Road (Route 1) at Pike Street/Collins Street (Route 286)
“These intersections are the gateway to Salisbury Beach, which is visited by thousands of residents and tourists every summer, and really they are the gateway to the Commonwealth,” said Representative Costello. “I think these improvements are a smart investment by the state and I want to thank Highway Administrator Frank DePaola for his help with the project.”
“I appreciate the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s commitment to improving these four intersections,” said Senator Ives. “Traffic signal upgrades, pavement markings and signage will make these intersections more safe and convenient for residents and visitors to Salisbury.”
Dagle Electrical Construction Corp. has been awarded the contract for the project.
“With the state undertaking the Whittier Bridge/I-95 reconstruction project, this project will help improve traffic through Salisbury, and around the Beach,” said Town Manager Neil Harrington. “I look forward to the work beginning.”
