Mt. Auburn Street could be repaired and redesigned in the near future, as the state gave approval to the project to move into the design phase.
MassHighway gave project review approval for the proposal, said Public Works Superintendent Gerald Mee, and now the town must start designing the project.
“We need to finish surveying work and we will have public meetings and start designing it,” Mee said.
Mee said he hopes to have the first of multiple meetings “within a few months.”
The design will include an option where the road will be one lane each way, with two lanes each way at some intersections and other key spots, Mee said.
