High Risk Rural Road Improvements by the RI Department of Transportation

Many residents have asked about improvements that started recently on some Town Roads.  Specifically, double yellow center lines have or will be painted on Trimtown Road, Bungy Road, Rocky Hill Road, the north segment of Gleaner Chapel Road, Westcott Road and Central Avenue.  This work was designed and is being paid for by RIDOT; there is no Scituate tax money involved. The pavement markings also include white edge lines.

The project scope involves placing secondary stop signs at several (20) intersections; there will be no new stop sign locations.  At 4 various locations, “curve warning” signs will be installed.

This RIDOT project was reviewed by the Town last year and we have agreed to maintain the improvements, once installed.

This parcel has a combination of open recreation areas, grassy habitat areas, and a variety of woodlot areas. area now includes open space, walking trails and the former Doctor’s Beach. Since 2005, the land has been managed under a Forest Stewardship Plan adopted by the Hope Associates. 

Hope Associates has identified a set of management objectives to guide the management of the property. 

·       The primary objective is to protect the recreational and scenic values of the property, and to provide recreational opportunities for the public, particularly residents of Scituate.

·       Secondary objectives include management for timber and for wildlife habitats to promote both the diversity of the wildlife habitat and plant communities, and the health and productivity of the woodlands.

The walk will highlight some recent forest and wildlife management activities conducted on the preserve in cooperation with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Directions: From the intersection of Route 12/116, continue south on Route 116 (passing the Providence Water Treatment Plant on the left) for approximately 1.7 miles and turn right onto Doctor’s Lane. Go about 1/10 mile to parking lot on right.
