Included as an amendment sponsored by state Sen. Jamie Eldridge, D-Acton, the money will complete funding for the rotary project. According to Eldridge’s office, the town currently has $384,000 on hand which was gifted from Benderson Development as part of a deal made during the construction of the Highland Commons shopping plaza more than a decade ago.
The rotary reconstruction is intended to create a better flow of traffic and make the intersection safer for pedestrians.
The Hudson Planning Department is reaching out to the community for input on the design of the new rotary. A public meeting with the department and contractor BSC Group will be held on Sunday, Aug. 7 at New City Microcreamery. Residents are encouraged to contribute feedback and ideas.
