Help Envision Arlington Center
Planning Begins on Phase II of the Mass. Ave. Project
Do you live, work, eat, shop or visit Arlington Center? Are you interested in helping to shape a vision for Mass. Ave. in Arlington Center?
Join the Town for the first phase of the planning process, focused on making Arlington Center more customer and pedestrian friendly. The engineering firm of VHB will work with the Town to develop a conceptual design for the area. This conceptual design study will result in a scope of work for the reconstruction of Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington Center, from Pond Lane to Mill Street. The project will eventually involve reconstruction of the roadway and improvements to curbs, sidewalks, lighting, street trees, street furniture, and more in the project area. Analysis of traffic patterns and transit usage will also be conducted. Broadway Plaza will get special attention, as the Town looks for new ways to make the area more inviting and vibrant. A public meeting to discuss the project and get your input will be hosted by the Departments of Public Works and Planning and Community Development, and facilitated by VHB.
The Town of Arlington is matching local funds with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, administered by the Department of Planning & Community Development, for these planning activities.
