CAMBRIDGE COMMON/FLAGSTAFF PARK PUBLIC MEETING
THURSDAY, MAY 22

Sponsored by the City of Cambridge, Representative Marjorie Decker and MassDOT

After many years of planning, the rehabilitation of the Cambridge Common and the addition of a multi-use path in Flagstaff Park will soon begin. Newport Construction has been engaged by the MassDOT to complete this construction beginning in early June, 2014. Construction is anticipated to last approximately 18-24 months.

Overall Project Goals 

     • Improved pathways within the Cambridge Common. 
     • New benches, trash and recycling receptacles, many new trees and grass, improved playing fields and irrigation. 
     • Addition of a two-way multi-use path across the street through Flagstaff Park, along Massachusetts Avenue.

We encourage you to attend the public meeting to learn more about the construction schedule, scope of work and logistics related to traffic detours and bus operations.
