Brockton Main Street Corridor Study

The purpose of the Main Street Corridor study is to study transportation and safety operations within the Main Street Corridor (approximately 5.2 miles) in Brockton. The study will result in the development of short term and long-term recommendations as well as strategies to improve circulation, traffic flow, safety, and bicycle and pedestrian accommodation. The corridor study area begins in the south on Main Street at the Brockton City Line/West Bridgewater Town Line, and concludes on North Main Street at the Brockton City Line/ Avon Town Line. The study commenced in the fall of 2019 with the data collection phase, (compilation of crashes, peak hour turning movement counts at key locations, and documentation of existing physical conditions such as signal and traffic control operations and signage). The study’s public outreach is also underway with the solicitation of input from key stakeholders. Background information on ongoing and planned development along the corridor is also being compiled and reviewed (such as the new downtown parking garage and the plans to revert the one-way system to two-way). The presentation from a public workshop on February 18th can be viewed here.
