Pepperell receives $200K grant for Railroad Square Sidewalk Network Improvements

Railroad Square 1

Pepperell is the proud recipient of a $200K grant through the Shared Streets and Spaces Program through MassDOT for Railroad Square Sidewalk Network Improvements.

The project will make pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements to historic Railroad Square, which is the heart of the business district in Pepperell, Massachusetts.  Safety improvements will include installing Rapid Flashing Beacons with advanced LED signs at the crossing of the Nashua River Rail Trail across Groton Street to provide a highly visible advance warning of users approaching the crossing.  The project would also entail the expansion of the existing sidewalk area along Main Street to accommodate space for improved streetscape such as benches and planters, outdoor dining, and way-finding signage to enhance pedestrian and bicyclist awareness of local destinations and events.  Additionally, the travel lanes along Main Street will be narrowed for the purpose of traffic calming and speed reduction, the crosswalks will be upgraded to include modifications for ADA compliance and new striping to provide better visibility for pedestrians and drivers, and the parking area along Main Street will be re-striped, with additional handicap parking spaces added for improved accessibility.
