North Shore Crossing
North Shore Crossing is an approximately 65,000 square foot shopping center containing Whole Foods and a variety of smaller retail and restaurant uses. The project required approvals from the City of Beverly, MEPA, and MassDOT and was permitted at the same time as major interchange improvements were under design and construction by the City and MassDOT. These improvements necessitated close coordination during the design of the project and ultimately a break-in-access petition to MassDOT. RMA prepared the transportation sections of the MEPA Draft and Final Environmental Impact Reports and coordinated with MassDOT on the break-in-access petition and Highway Access required for the project.
The Village at Colony Place
Ron Müller managed the traffic engineering and permitting efforts for an 865,000 square foot retail lifestyle center on Commerce Way in Plymouth, Massachusetts while employed at Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. The project required review and approval from the MEPA office, the MassDOT including a Highway Access Permit and approval of construction documents for off-site traffic improvements, and local approval from the Plymouth Planning Board and a Master Plan Special Permit from the Plymouth Zoning Board of Appeals. Due to the size of the project, Ron Müller also prepared an internal site circulation study to evaluate traffic operations at the internal intersections within the project that resulted in the installation of a traffic control signal at the main internal intersection and the construction of a bridge over the main access road connecting retail centers on both sides of the access road.
Shoppes at Blackstone Valley
The Shoppes at Blackstone Valley is an 823,000 square foot retail lifestyle center center in Millbury, Massachusetts. The project required review and approval from the Town of Millbury, MEPA, and MassDOT including a Highway Access Permit and approval of construction documents for off-site traffic improvements. The project was in the permitting stages at the same time as MassDOT’s Route 146 improvement project and required modifications to that design, including the adjacent Route 146 interchange. Ron Müller provided all traffic engineering services and presentations on this project while employed at Greenman-Pedersen, Inc.
