Route 107 Corridor Study

Route 107 Corridor Study LogoThe Massachusetts Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Cities of Salem and Lynn, is conducting the Route 107 Corridor Study. This study will evaluate improvements to address existing issues and mitigate potential future impacts from new retail development along Route 107 from Boston Street in Salem to Chestnut Street in Lynn. MassDOT will analyze intersections along the corridor to assess how well they operate (delays, queuing, traffic signal design, and other deficiencies) and potential ways to improve them. Of particular interest are the intersections at Marlborough Road/Traders Way and Swampscott Road in Salem. These intersections experience heavy turning volumes and shifting of traffic, resulting in delays and operational inefficiencies. A plan for future transportation improvements (short-term, medium-term, and long-term), based on an alternatives analysis, will be the end result of this project.
