Route 122 Meeting – January 22

For those interested, there will be a meeting about Route 122 at the Tatnuck School Library, 1083 Pleasant Street, on January 22 at 7:00pm.

The description below is a bit unclear, so I’ve posted a document on Google Drive that details what they will be discussing.

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed stormwater improvements associated with Tatnuck Brook along Route 122 project. All views and comments made at the meeting will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

PROPOSAL:

The proposed project consists of improving the stormwater management system along Route 122 which discharges to Tatnuck Brook in Worcester. Three stormwater best management practices (BMPs) are proposed and include: 1 infiltration basin on the south side of Route 122 and 1 series of subsurface infiltration basins south of Route 122 and 1 subsurface infiltration basin south of Route 122 to the west of the Route 122 crossing of Tatnuck Brook.

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be discussed at this meeting.

Written views received by MassDOT subsequent to the date of this notice and up to five (5) days prior to the date of the meeting shall be displayed for public inspection and copying at the time and date listed above. Plans will be on display one-half hour before the meeting begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project. A project handout will be made available on the MassDOT website listed below.

Written statements and other exhibits in place of, or in addition to, oral statements made at the Public Meeting regarding the proposed undertaking are to be submitted to Patricia A. Leavenworth, P.E., Chief Engineer, MassDOT, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116, Attention: Roadway Project Management, Project File No. 607001. Such submissions will also be accepted at the meeting. Project inquiries may be emailed to dot.feedback.highway@state.ma.us
