BOSTONSeeking to improve the safety along the Arborway for all user groups, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) has completed a road safety audit 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 reviewed by accessing the agency’s Arborway Parkways Improvement Project webpage, are both short term and long term improvement recommendations, many of which the DCR is beginning to explore the feasibility of.

Currently, the DCR is in the process of preparing a Request for Responses (RFR) for a transportation engineering consultant to complete design plans for reconstructing the parkway. Additionally, the agency is planning to host a public meeting in fall 2019. This meeting will include:

  • A presentation of the Arborway Road Safety Audit;
  • A review of short term improvements that will be or have been made by the agency along the parkway; and,
  • An outline of the design phase for long term parkway reconfiguration and improvement work.
