Announcement from the Town of Hopkinton:

The Town is providing an opportunity for those who are interested in reviewing the 25% Project Design, as recommended by the DISC, with the Town Engineer, DPW Director and Director of Land Use Planning and Permitting.

The Project includes improvements on Main Street from Ash to Wood Streets including aesthetic improvements, roadway realignment, sidewalks, pedestrian safety, on street parking, bike lanes, and changes to major intersections.

The Project is ready for submission to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation for review, but the Town is offering this meeting to the public with key staff members. Town staff will provide a brief summary of the key elements of the Project, the process moving forward through Final Design and eventual construction.

Your comments and recommendations will be conveyed to the DISC and to the Board of Selectmen (BOS) at one of their upcoming meetings.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an update to the public and to gather additional input for DISC and the BOS prior to formal submission to MassDOT. With town meeting deadlines on the horizon, this will help to inform and shape the decisions that will be made as to how the Town will proceed with the various elements and the overall Project.

Please consider attending this daytime meeting which will be held in Room 215 (Board of Selectmen meeting room) at the Hopkinton Town Hall 18 Main Street on Thursday, January 17th from 10:00 to 11:00 AM.

In addition to this meeting the Project will be presented to the Board of Selectmen at their January 22nd meeting in Room 215 of Town Hall.
