Abstract

This project, on behalf of Stantec, Inc., aimed to redesign a section of Park Avenue in Worcester, MA with the goal of improving safety, efficiency, accessibility, and appearance. Existing conditions were documented and crash rate, level-of-service (using HCS 2010), and benefit-cost analyses were conducted. Potential improvement options were identified, evaluated, and the most viable were selected. Recommendations include: specific countermeasures and improvements to meet the goals, and suggested future actions for the continuation of this project.
