August 2015

Eversource Gas is currently updating the gas main and individual services on Amory Street between St. Mary Road and Hampshire Street. Once that work is completed, the City's contractor, D'Allessandro Corporation, will begin to schedule work to reconstruct the sidewalks and roadway.

Design Update
In addition to sidewalks, handicap ramps and roadway reconstruction and paving, the project includes traffic calming elements to reduce vehicle speeds and enhance safety for pedestrians. These were developed through a community process, which included a neighborhood meeting (May 2014) where residents expressed their concerns that vehicles were traveling too quickly and did not obey the stop sign at the intersection at St. Mary Road. City staff also had several follow-up meetings with individual property owners.

As a result, the project design includes a new raised crosswalk at the intersection of Amory Street with Broadway and a curb extension at the intersection of Amory and Hampshire Street. A raised intersection will be constructed at Amory and St. Mary to slow vehicles and curb extensions around existing trees in front of #119 - #127 and #153 to provide access and enhance pedestrian safety. The stop sign at the intersection will also be removed due to the raised intersection.

Roadway/Sidewalk Reconstruction
The roadway and sidewalk reconstruction phase of this project is anticipated to take place in fall 2015 and be completed in spring 2016.

Water Work
The Cambridge Water Department is expected to have updates to the new water main and services completed by December 2014.

NSTAR GAS
NStar Gas is expected to perform upgrades to the gas main and gas services on Amory Street, between Broadway and Hampshire, in the spring 2015

The Amory Street Reconstruction Project includes:

- Roadway reconstruction

- Sidewalk reconstruction

- Traffic calming measures at the St. Mary Road intersection
