Traffic Pattern Change Coming to Inman Square July 1

News Image

Starting July 1, the City will reallocate roadway space to create outdoor dining space on the north and south sides of Cambridge St between Springfield St and Oak St, and on the north side of Cambridge St between Oakland St and Prospect St. On the north side of the street, the areas will convert to loading and short-term parking when they are not being used for dining. 

Additional parking will be available in seven back-in angled parking spaces which will be created on Cambridge St in the block between Oak St and Oakland St. 

On Cambridge St from Springfield St to Prospect St, motor vehicle travel will be limited to the westbound direction (towards Harvard Square). Motor vehicles going in the eastbound direction will be detoured via Hampshire St and Prospect St. People walking and biking many continue to go in both directions through this area. 

The City is coordinating with the MBTA to make changes to the bus stops for Route 69 passengers headed towards Lechmere.
