Hopkinton

North Woods Coalition

OUR MISSION:

Advocate for the interests of property owners around the I-495/90 interchange.


ESTABLISHED IN 2020

Our Priorities:


Safeguard our water quality

Construction activity around the I495-90 interchange has the potential to threaten the integrity of our community's wells. With no fewer than six subcontractors taking part in the project between 2022-2027, ground water contamination is a real risk. 

Reduce road noise impacts

With an average of 75,000 vehicles transiting the I-495/90 interchange every day, area property owners would benefit from noise mitigation infrastructure along the approaches to and exits from the interchange. 

Improve road safety

Fruit Street is a dangerous but vital through route for area commuters. Its bridge over I-495 is slated for replacement as part of the interchange improvement project. This bridge provides local emergency responders critical access to more than 100 homes around the I-495/90 interchange.
