Attleboro, Massachusetts


VAI provided traffic engineering and planning services for this $2,000,000 project including intersection and traffic signal improvements along the U.S. Route 1 corridor associated with a proposed mixed-use retail development in Attleboro, Massachusetts.  Improvements included widening and reconstruction of approximately 1,700 feet of Route 1 from Highland Avenue to May Street, and approximately 750 feet of Angeline Street  to accommodate new travel lanes and turning lanes to improve capacity, 5-foot shoulders for bicycle access; traffic signal upgrades including Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) push buttons and countdown heads; drainage system modifications; utility relocations; sidewalk and wheelchair ramp reconstruction for ADA/AAB compliance; pavement markings and signing; and pavement milling and overlay.  Additional work included the analysis and upgrade of the existing coordinated traffic signal system at the intersections of Route 1/Highland Avenue, Route 1/Route 1A, Route 1/Angeline Street, Route 1/May Street and Route 1A/Newport Avenue.
