The Town has an opportunity to enhance the vitality and mobility of the historic Shawsheen Village. The project focuses on Route 133 (Lowell Street) which is a major arterial route running through the heart of a dynamic, growing area of the Merrimack Valley. Not only will this improve mobility along the corridor, it will provide an opportunity to re-imagine Shawsheen Village. There are many natural and historic resources that are unique to Shawsheen and this project aims to uncover and highlight them to revitalize an important area in our community.
- The project limits will extend approximately 1.25 miles, from West Parish to Shawsheen Village
- Include upgrades at the intersections with Beacon Street/Shawsheen Road and Main Street (Route 28)
- Improve safety and roadway capacity
- Introduce bicycle accommodations, ADA-accessible sidewalk and crosswalks, and more.
