Harvard Square Meeting Notice

Location: Isaacson Room, Harvard Smith Center,

Date: Thursday December 5, 2019

Time: 6:00 – 7:30 pm

Harvard Square Kiosk and Plaza Project

As part of the City’s commitment to Vision Zero*, city staff have taken a closer look at the Super Crosswalk area (pedestrian crossing between the Kiosk and the Harvard Coop) to determine if additional safety measures can be incorporated into the scope of the reconstruction of the plaza.  Staff have identified traffic signal changes that support travel lane reductions and improve the safety for all users.  The changes will simplify the overall operation of the intersection; reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians; provide additional plaza space; and simplify the merge for cyclists and motorists travelling towards Porter Square.  We invite you to attend the meeting to learn more about these safety improvements and provide input on the design changes.

*Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.
