Route 79/Davol Street Corridor Study

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is this study going to include the interchange of Route 79 with I-195?
  • Changes to the Route 79/I-195 Interchange, sometimes referred to as the "the Spaghetti Ramps," are being investigated under a separate project. This study will incorporate any potential changes to the interchange as a “no-build” condition for our analysis. This study will NOT be proposing any modifications to that interchange.

  • A study of this area was done in 2008. Why is another study being done now?
  • The 2008 study was led by the Fall River Office of Economic Development. That study broadly investigated potential changes to the roadway network with the goal of fostering economic development. One of that study’s recommendations was to further develop and analyze three alternatives. This new study will assess and refine those alternatives with a focus on regional transportation impacts, economic and land use feasibility and environmental constraints.

  • How can the local community provide input for this study?
  • The study team welcomes community participation. It will seek guidance from a Working Group comprised of local community and business leaders, government officials and organizations, and participating organizations such as MassDOT, Southeastern Regional Planning & Economic Development District and the City of Fall River. We also encourage comments to be expressed through attendance at the Public Informational Meetings. Comments can also be submitted directly to MassDOT through the link provided on this website.
