Massachusetts Avenue Reconstruction
Includes Shepard Street to Linnaean Street and Beech Street to Russell Street
Crews will mobilize to:
- Linnaean Street to construct a new curb extension on the northern corner of Linnaean Street at Massachusetts Avenue
- Martin Street to reconstruct sidewalks
- Hudson Street to reconstruct sidewalks
Both Mass Ave crews have suspended construction activities for the season. Crews will return to Mass Ave in the spring of 2015 to perform roadway reconstruction and final paving.
Please check back for updates.
In 2011, the City of Cambridge Community Development Department began a study to explore ways to improve the character of Mass Avenue from Cambridge Common to Porter Square, with the goal of developing recommendations for improvements that address streetscape improvements, and enhancement of the retail environment. Neither street reconstruction nor major infrastructure work is anticipated on Massachusetts Avenue in this location, therefore changes to the physical layout of the street including the median and curb lines are not a part of this process. The study process included a series of public meetings which began in Spring 2011.
The stretch of sidewalk from Shepard St to Garfield St, referred to as the “Demonstration Block” will include concrete and brick sidewalk paving, enhanced tree pits, street furniture and other features established in the Lower Massachusetts Ave Master Plan.
