The Route 1 Priority Corridor Study is one in a series of studies supported by the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to address goal areas such as safety, capacity management and mobility, system preservation, and economic vitality. The study focuses on one of the locations identified in the regional needs assessment of the MPO’s Long-Range Transportation Plan, Destination 2040. This report presents details of the analyses of existing conditions, assesses safety and operational problems in the corridor, and makes short- and long-term recommendations for implementing improvements. The recommendations, if implemented, should result in benefits such as increased safety for all users, enhanced walking and biking accommodations, better access for transportation equity populations, greater east-west access, more efficient traffic operations, and reduced congestion.
