State officials from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will visit Lynn on Wednesday, September 7 at Lynn English Auditorium from 6 to 8 p.m., to present to the public their findings from a year-long survey and outreach campaign aimed at identifying solutions to the traffic congestion and safety problems plaguing Route 107 in Lynn and Salem.
The study, which was completed with assistance from officials in both Lynn and Salem, studied traffic volumes, alternative to be considered and makes recommendations on how to impreove the Route 107 corridor.
A second similar meeting will also be held in Salem on Tuesday, September 13 at the Collins Middle School on Highland Avenue in Salem.
The public is invited to attend either meeting, to hear the study group’s recommendations and make comments to the state.
Several city officials have already voiced their support for improvements to the Route 107 corridor, including Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy, State Representative and City Council President Daniel Cahill and Ward 2 Councilor William Trahant who all spoke at a city meeting earlier this year.
