  • Traffic in Porter Square

Traffic in Porter Square

Joseph Barr, Director of the Traffic, Parking, and Transportation department, discussed a preliminary proposal to make safety and operational improvements for all users in Porter Square, including pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and bus riders. He presented a preliminary transportation study that looked at the timing of the traffic signals at Porter Square, including Upland Road/Mass Ave and White Street/Somerville Ave, as well as the main intersection.

The key idea is to replace the dedicated left turn lane through the plaza and allow left turns from Somerville Avenue onto Massachusetts Avenue.
