This document was requested and funded by the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The need for this study was identified in the MPO´s 2004 Congestion Management System report. With the guidance of the Mid–North Shore Subregional Transportation Study Advisory Group, CTPS staff identified and recommended transportation improvements for the study area, which included Lynn, Swampscott, and southern Salem. The main section of the report summarizes analysis methods and some key results, while the bulk of the data and results are provided in the appendices. The recommended improvements are multimodal; they reduce congestion, increase mobility, and enhance overall safety in the corridor. The report also includes a description of the steps that communities should follow in order to begin the process of implementing desired transportation projects.
