To improve safety and reliability for users of the street, “quick build” changes will be made to Massachusetts Avenue from Sidney Street to Memorial Drive with an emphasis on increasing the comfort and convenience of people walking, biking and riding buses. This project supports the City’s Vision Zero goal to reduce and eliminate serious injuries/fatalities from crashes, as well as City policies that promote the use of sustainable ways to travel in Cambridge. This is the third community event for the project; there have also been four advisory committee meetings, a senior town meeting, and two senior coffees; as well as outreach tables at two Central Flea days, three farmer’s markets, and the Taste of Cambridge. An online wikimap solicited public input as well.
We encourage you to attend this public open house to view the plans and implementation schedule for the project which includes separated bicycle lanes, sections of bus priority lanes and a new crosswalk.
Come view the latest plans and implementation schedule for the project. Staff will be available to discuss the plans and answer any questions.
