Overview of Arborway Parkways Improvement Project 11/21/2019

Seeking to improve safety along the Arborway for all user groups, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) has completed a Road Safety Audit (RSA) of the parkway from South Street to Eliot Street in the City of Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood. Contained within the report, which can be viewed from DCR’s project webpage at , are both short-term and long-term improvement recommendations.

At this public meeting, DCR will provide information on the RSA; review short-term improvements that will be or have been made by the agency along the parkway; and, outline the planned design process for long-term parkway reconfiguration and improvements.

The presentation made will be viewable after the public meeting on DCR’s website at The public will be invited to submit comments on the planned short-term improvements and design process at and after the meeting, with a deadline for receipt by DCR of Friday, December 6, 2019.
