McMahon is leading the multidisciplinary consultant team to improve pedestrian accessibility and roadway/intersection operations in the vicinity of the Power Canal at 5th Street in Montague. The McMahon team is working with Town officials to develop pedestrian accommodations, including over 1,700 feet of sidewalks, improved crosswalks and accessible curb ramps. The connectivity improvements will integrate with the existing Canal Side Rail Trail and replacement pedestrian bridge to re-establish this vital link within the Canal District.
McMahon’s design includes providing pedestrian access to the mill buildings, parking facilities, Canal Side Rail Trail and Canal Street. Proposed improvements to the intersection layouts on both sides of the 5th Street vehicular bridge include better defined approaches and revised parking lot configurations. In addition, utility upgrades will be provided.
McMahon assisted the Town in developing an application for funding from the MassWorks Infrastructure Program.
