Welcome to the community webpage for the Dot Ave stimulus construction project! MassDOT will use this web page to keep residents and business regularly informed with information about the construction phases of the project, including planned lane closures or detours.

The $15.6 million federal stimulus American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) road project is part of Governor Deval Patrick's Massachusetts recovery plan to secure the state's economic future.

MassDOT is working closely with Mayor Menino and the Boston Transportation Department to oversee the project which will transform the Dorchester Avenue corridor through major safety and mobility improvements.

Project Summary:

Peabody Square

The project, overseen by MassDOT, will upgrade 15 intersections along Dorchester Avenue including four major intersections at Andrews Square, Glover's Corner, Fields Corner and Peabody Square. All 15 intersections will receive significant traffic signal equipment upgrades and state-of-the-art interconnection and hardwire control to the Boston Traffic Management Center.

Accessibility and bicycle accommodation improvements will be included along the corridor. McCourt Construction Company from South Boston has begun work associated with the installation of the underground electrical conduit needed to connect the traffic signals to the Traffic Center. Full construction operations will begin in the spring of 2010 and completion is expected by the fall of 2012.

Project Complete September 2012.

The Dorchester Avenue ARRA Project has been completed by MassDOT.
