About this Project

The Town of Braintree asked FST to determine the most efficient design for an open intersection in South Braintree along a corridor that carries approximately 7,000 vehicles per day.  Neighbors complained of speeding vehicles and requested ways to slow down traffic.  The corridor was slated to be reconstructed within weeks.

Working with the Town, FST developed two options: a conventional T intersection and a modern roundabout.  FST recommended the modern roundabout option as being the most efficient way to accomplish the objectives. Plans were developed and presented to the Town and the modern roundabout was implemented.
