Needham Street/Highland Ave. project meetings announced

Mass Department of Transportation is holding three informational meetings to discuss the proposed reconstruction of Highland Ave in Needham and Needham and Winchester Streets in Newton.

The project would stretch roughly two miles, from Webster Street in Needham to Route 9 in Newton. It would widen sidewalks, improve intersections, add raised bikes lanes and crossing signals and rehabilitate the bridge over the Charles River.

This will be your chance to see the designs, ask questions and provide input.

It is the chamber’s understanding that the Jan. 10 meeting will focus more on the Needham portion of the project and the Jan. 11 and 12 meetings will have a Newton focus, however the full project will be discussed during all three sessions.
