Today’s traffic signal equipment provides flexibility to establish multiple plans that can be implemented by the time of day and the day of week to be responsive to the actual traffic volumes.
MassDOT expects to complete our initial analyses of the critical peak commuting periods by the end of September with implementation of updated timing and phasing plans occurring in early October. Additional plans will be implemented later in October once the 24 hour count data is available and has been reviewed. We encourage our customers that travel through the corridor to continue to provide us with comments on your experiences as we plan and implement those changes.
