New Separated Bike Lanes on Mass Ave

Separated bike lanes near 929 Mass Ave

During the month of September 2021, the Traffic, Parking, and Transportation Department implemented the Mid-Mass Ave Safety Improvement Project, which brought a number of safety and road user improvements to a section of Massachusetts Ave between Trowbridge St and Inman St. While the project is now substantially complete and in use, some items such as the remaining bike lane symbols and signage cleanup will continue to be installed in the coming days.

As a reminder, the Mid-Mass Ave Safety Improvement Project was a quick-build project that included:

  • separated bike lanes on Massachusetts Avenue between Trowbridge St and Inman St;
  • pavement marking and signage updates for transit riders;
  • signage updates to improve pedestrian safety; and
  • a number of changes to parking and loading regulations to accommodate the needs of business owners and residents.

Separated bike lanes create space that is physically separated from vehicle traffic, which improves safety and comfort for people biking. More information about the project background and past outreach is available on the project page. This work is inline with the City's Vision Zero goals and will meet the requirements of the Cycling Safety Ordinance.
