Project Background 

Through the Kendall Square Planning Study (K2C2 ), a plan of improvements for Main Street (Ames to Wadsworth) has been developed. The plan will provide a high quality experience for pedestrians and cyclists with reconstructed sidewalks and roadway, enhance transit accommodations, provide a new connection from Third St to Main St, and include seating, bus shelters and bike parking, including artist designed bike racks

Please also check the K2C2 website for more information on this project.
