Western Avenue is scheduled to be fully reconstructed beginning in summer 2011. The underground stormwater and sewer system, roadway, and sidewalks will all be replaced from Franklin Street to Memorial Drive. The redesign considers all street users: walkers, bicyclists, bus riders, and drivers. The public process began in January 2010. Neighborhood walks and meetings have been held. An advisory committee has been meeting regularly.
This community meeting, at the Citywide Senior Center, 806 Mass. Ave., is an opportunity for the community to learn about the draft proposed conceptual design that has been developed for the Western Avenue Reconstruction Project. A draft will be available on the project website soon (http://westernavenue.info).
