About the Study

This STARS (Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions) study is assessing potential safety, operational and multimodal improvements for just over a mile of Dale Boulevard (Route 784) from Gideon Drive to Route 1, and nearly half a mile of Rippon Boulevard (Route 1392) from Route 1 to Blackburn Road.

The study is assessing existing traffic, safety and multimodal conditions in the corridor, including driver weaving issues at the Dale Boulevard/I-95 interchange and accommodations for people walking and biking. The study team received public input regarding corridor priorities during the first round of public involvement in July. This feedback will be used to help develop potential safety, operational and multimodal alternatives that will be evaluated and presented during the second round of public involvement scheduled this winter.

Within the study limits, Dale Boulevard averages about 42,000 vehicles a day and Rippon Boulevard averages about 12,000.

First Round of Public Involvement – July 2023
Second Round of Public Involvement – Winter 2023/24
Study Completion – Summer 2024
