Route 18 Corridor Study Public Meeting


The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is conducting a planning study of the Route 18 corridor between Elm Street and Coggeshall Street.

The study is the third phase of the Route 18 redesign and focuses on the section of roadway from Elm Street to Coggeshall Street in New Bedford.  Phase One from Walnut Street to Elm Street was completed in 2012; and Phase 2 from Cove Street to Walnut Street was completed in 2019.

The goals of the corridor study are to identify ways to improve access and connectivity through the Route 18 corridor from Elm Street to Coggeshall Street. The study will identify improvements to address access, connectivity, and mobility challenges faced by all users of the corridor, including pedestrians, bicycles, transit, and motorists. It will consider access to the new South Coast Rail Station and economic development opportunities.
