Welcome to this website for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation's (MassDOT) Route 2 Concord
Rotary Reconstruction Project.
The Route 2 Concord Rotary is a challenge to navigate during morning and evening
rush hours for commuters and residents. Drivers often use residential streets in
the area to avoid back-ups at the rotary, increasing traffic and reducing safety
on local streets. MassDOT's Highway Division is planning to replace the rotary and create a typical
overpass to make it operate safely and much more efficiently, while minimizing environmental
impacts. The Highway Division is also exploring opportunities to improve neighborhood connections,
incorporate the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail and wildlife corridors, improve water and
air quality and enhance the aesthetics of the project area in its design, to the
This website provides information about the reconstruction project and related issues.
Citizens of Concord and surrounding communities who live with and use the rotary
can find updates on the design and review process here. About the
Project presents an overview of the plan and the schedule and introduces
the team. Detailed information about meetings and updates is located in
Events & News. Current and background documents and links to other websites
and information are under Resources. If you would like
