Road Reconstruction Project

To The Editor;

            It is important for Mattapoisett residents to attend MassDOT’s meeting about our Road Reconstruction project. The date, time and location are Tuesday June 18 at 6:30 -7:30 PM at the Old Rochester High School Auditorium, as listed in the legal notices and on the Town website. The Public Informational Meeting, planned and hosted by MassDOT, is a good venue and hopefully there will be a large turn out. The project is currently in pre-25%, or “preliminary design,” phase. This is the time when the Town has the most ability to influence aspects that affect quality of life. The DOT’s press release says “All views and comments made at the meeting will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.” In a related matter, Selectboard is considering the Town Meeting vote to establish a committee to assist with road design. Per the Town website, information about serving on the proposed Road Reconstruction Committee is available through the Selectboard office.
