[ARCHIVED] 3A Road Diet

Road Diet Visual

In conjunction with MassDOT and the Towns of Hull and Cohasset, the  Town of Hingham will be moving forward with a temporary pilot program to measure in real time traffic patterns and impacts and validate computer modeling of proposed long-term safety solutions for the Summer St  corridor.

Summer and Rockland Streets from east of the rotary to  the intersection at George Washington Boulevard will be reduced from  four lanes to two lanes, or one vehicle lane in each direction beginning on Monday morning May 21, 2018. Four lanes of traffic and left turning  lanes will remain at signaled intersections. A message board about the  project will go up on Summer St beginning the week of May 1, 2018

 Anticipated Schedule

  • May 20, 2018:  Lane reduction test begins (one lane in each direction)
  • July 31, 2018:  Lane reduction test ends (returns to four lanes)
