Upcoming Traffic Safety Improvements near the Amigos School

The Cambridge Traffic, Parking, and Transportation Department (TP+T) will be making several changes near the Amigos school to improve safety for students and other people walking.

The Amigos school will reconvene classes for all grades on March 1st. The School is implementing scheduling changes, including a new mid-day dismissal. As a result, we will be making changes to the parking regulations and travel patterns near the school.

The parking on Upton St in front of the Amigos School is currently restricted from 8 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. on school days. We will be restricting parking in front of the school from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. on school days, the typical parking regulation at most schools in Cambridge. We will also post "Do Not Enter (8 a.m. - 4 p.m., Mon-Fri)" signs at the Pleasant St end of the street in order to improve safety. This change will not impact residents leaving their homes during these hours.

As many students access the school by crossing Magazine St at Upton St, we will also be installing Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) at this intersection. RRFBs are pedestrian-activated flashing lights that help drivers know that someone is trying to cross the street. We expect to install these RRFBs before the end of the year.
