Newburyport is a small city located 35 miles northeast of Boston in Essex County. According to the 2010 Census, the population was 17,416 and the city is 10.6 square miles. Newburyport is considered a part of Massachusetts’ North Shore. The population density of Newburyport was 2,086.2 people per square mile as of the 2010 Census. There were 8,264 households and 4,428 families living in Newburyport. Interstate 95 passes through the city with one exit, which is located at Route 113.

The MBTA’s Newburyport/Rockport line originates at North Station in Boston and ends in Newburyport, just before the entrance of the city's Rail Trail. One of the most dangerous intersections in Newburyport is located at Route 107/Spur Road intersection. The intersection is particularly dangerous because it allows drivers to cut across two lanes of Route 107’s oncoming traffic. Route 286 is also a dangerous road because it is a narrow, two-lane road leading in both directions from Seabrook Beach. This street is particularly problematic during the summer months because it borders lobster pounds that often have overflow parking into the street.

Newburyport has recently received funding to help alleviate some of the traffic congestion the city often faces. In November 2012, the city received a $1 million grant that gone towards the reconstruction of Spofford Street, Merrimac Street, and Moseley Avenue. Improvements were planned to be made to safety and to traffic flow as the intersection was rebuilt into a single-lane roundabout. For any residents traveling that intersection prior to the commencement of construction, you know that the design was really flawed. There were two perpendicular roads which entered the intersection without stop signs. Coming from the east, you would have thought you had the right of way, but in reality, the road from the north had it, without having any stop or yield sign. The roundabout has proven effective so far, although its construction resembled a circus act, as opposed to a construction project. Mistakes were made repeatedly throughout the process, resulting in mass and ongoing confusion. Ultimately, all corrections were made and the roundabout was finished under budget, providing a far safer driving experience.

Newburyport and the surrounding communities have a strong biking community. To alleviate some of the bike-road congestion, advocates, municipal offices, MassDOT, Merrimack Valley Planning Commission, Metropolitan Area Planning Council, and National Grid created plans for a 28-mile Border to Boston Rail Trail. Currently, 10 miles of the 28-mile trail are open to the public. In Newburyport, the trail connects with the Coastal Trail Network. Although cyclists on the Boston Rail Trail are generally protected from motor vehicle traffic, about 6 miles of the trail are located on low-traffic roads between Boxford and Newburyport. Cyclists must be cautious while biking on this 6-mile stretch to ensure that they are obeying the traffic laws and avoiding coming into contact with motor vehicles. All in all, the rail trail is a fantastic resource for Newburyport and the surrounding communities which have a portion within their limits.
