Inman Sq Traffic Study Presentation


Intersection of Cambridge Street and Hampshire Street, Inman Square, Cambridge

The Traffic, Parking, and Transportation Department has been working on a traffic study of the Inman Square intersection, with the goal of addressing safety and congestion issues raised by the community.

On Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016 the Department hosted a public meeting to present initial results of this study, and to discuss potential improvement recommendations. These includes changes to traffic signal timing, crosswalks, bicycle facilities, and the design of the intersection, all aimed at improving safety and operations for all users, including more vulnerable users such as pedestrians and cyclists.

The community members at the meetings were enthusiastic about the potential changes, and the Department is planning to move forward with next phases of planning and design, to develop a more detailed improvement plan. In addition, we will pursue short-term safety improvements that can be implemented over the next 3-6 months.
