Old Colony Planning Council (OCPC) is conducting a Major Bottleneck Study for the Route 138 Corridor in Stoughton this year and would like to get as much public input as possible as the OCPC develops the final report.
The geographic scope of the study is the Route 138 corridor from Brock Street (at Zachary’s) to the Canton Town Line.
The purpose of this study, according to Jed Cornock, Transportation Planner with the Old Colony Planning Council, is to identify the reasons for the bottleneck conditions on the corridor, provide potential short and long term improvements, and identify possible funding sources for those improvements.

One way the OCPC is doing this is with an online survey on its website:
