Hingham: Route 3A Task Force Meets with Concerned Residents

The Route 3A task force met Wednesday night and heard from residents that are concerned about a dangerous section of George Washington Boulevard.

The task force for Route 3A is working with the state to come up with solutions to make the stretch between the Hingham rotary and George Washington Boulevard safer.

In a state study, accident rates on the stretch are higher than the average in the Commonwealth and Hingham resident Chazmine Coyle says she wants her and her neighbors homes on George Washington Boulevard to be included in the study and plan.

Hingham Town Engineer Roger Fernandez advised the group of residents to meet with the board of selectmen to try to find a solution.

Fernandez says the next step in the proposed traffic project is to get approval from the state.

The proposed $7 million dollar traffic project for Route 3A from before the rotary to George Washington BLVD will improve traffic flow and add lanes for pedestrian and bike traffic.
