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.
May 20, 2018: Lane reduction began (one lane in each direction)
July 26, 2018: Lane reduction ended (returned to four lanes)
To coordinate the activities of the Rte. 3A-Summer Street corridor project with town staff, represent the town with state agencies and surrounding local communities, and advise the Board of Selectmen as to the approved designs and implementation of the project.
