Abstract

The intersection of Shawsheen Street, Patten Road, Foster Road, and Beech Street in Tewksbury, Massachusetts can no longer provide safe and efficient travel due to poor design and increasing traffic. Utilizing traffic engineering data collection and design, problems that affect safety and throughput were identified, and a design to alleviate those problems was created. By using Highway Capacity Software analysis, AutoCAD modeling, and professional intersection design, this design sought to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Tewksbury.
