McMahon has been retained by the City of Waltham to prepare a transportation master plan to map out the city’s transportation future. The city is seeking to identify and prioritize transportation infrastructure improvements in a 10-year action plan. As part of this project, McMahon has evaluated existing transportation conditions and safety issues at 91 study area intersections. In addition, issues related to pedestrian and bicycle accommodations, public transportation options, parking and mode split have been identified and will be addressed during the study.
McMahon will identify the top 20 intersections and five major corridors warranted for mitigation as part of the 10-year action plan. The action-plan will include immediate, short and long term solutions with conceptual sketch plans and cost estimates. The improvements will follow MassDOT’s guidelines for complete streets. A final transportation master plan report will be prepared for the city with proposed recommendations for future improvements. Stakeholder and public outreach is being coordinated throughout the project including a current online survey that will be made available to residents and commuters to provide input on existing transportation needs and deficiencies.
