*Let your elected officials know that you OPPOSE the ROUNDABOUT and SUPPORT alternative solutions at the intersection of RANDOLPH AVENUE AND CHICKATAWBUT ROAD*

Background: This dangerous intersection causes a significant number of traffic accidents each year. As such, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has designed and proposed removing the traffic signals at the intersection and replacing it with a ROUNDABOUT. We the citizens of Milton, residents and business owners of Randolph Avenue and neighborhoods and side streets of Randolph Avenue believe this ROUNDABOUT will negatively affect our ability to enter onto Randolph Avenue, negatively affect our commute on Randolph Avenue and negatively affect our property value. We are proposing an alternative plan that will address all issues related to the intersection of Randolph Avenue and Chickatawbut Road and avoid the negative impact of a permanent roundabout.

ALTERNATIVE PLAN:

  • Move the intersection southerly to create a better line of sight for traffic, eliminating hill obstruction at dangerous southbound left turn point.
  • Create a dedicated southbound left turn only lane at the intersection.
  • Install traffic signals at the intersection including protected left signal. This will eliminate the multiple left turn lane accidents that occur at the intersection. Keeping traffic signals at the intersection will also allow breaks in traffic which give driveways and side street traffic the opportunity to enter onto Randolph Avenue.
  • Continue and connect the two south bound lanes from the Intersection of Chickatawbut Rd. to the existing two-lane southbound road in Randolph. This will eliminate the bottleneck beyond Chickatawbut Rd. that contributes to traffic backup along the southbound lanes of Randolph Ave. during the evening commute.
