Harvey Street Traffic Calming

Work to begin on Monday, August 15th

Dear Harvey Street Neighbor,

Several months ago the Community Development Department (CDD) received a request for traffic calming on Harvey Street. City staff conducted a community process that consisted of two neighborhood meetings and individual meetings with residents.

After evaluating the options and their impacts, and taking into consideration the input of residents, the proposed improvements for Harvey Street will include construction of new access ramps and crosswalks on Harvey Street at the intersections of Wesley Ave/Reed Street, Jackson Street and, Clifton Street (please below map). Please be advised that based on field conditions and the possibility of conflicts with underground utilities, these locations may need to be slightly altered on site.

The City’s contractor, F. De Roma & Sons, will begin this work on Monday, August 15th. This work is anticipated to last for 1 week and general work hours will be 7am – 4pm, Monday – Friday.

What to Expect During Construction:
  • General work hours will be 7AM to 4 PM, Monday-Friday.
  • “No Parking” signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance of construction; please be sure to check posted signs for exact dates and times.
  • When work occurs directly in front of driveways or entryways, the contractor will coordinate access directly with residents.
  • City services will continue uninterrupted and emergency vehicles will maintain access at all times.
Information & Assistance:
If you have any questions regarding construction, please contact Dan Riviello, Community Relations Manager, at 617.349.4825/ driviello@cambridgema.gov or the Department of Public Works at 617-349-4800.
