This project will redesign and improve two major intersections in Saxonville. The project limits include:
- Central Street, from the Sudbury River bridge to Concord Street
- Concord Street and Elm Street, from Stones Court to Victoria Gardens
The project will include improvements to road geometry and traffic signals to improve traffic flow, provide traffic calming and additional pedestrian crossings to improve safety, incorporate sharrows for bicycle access, add on-street parking, and provide improvements to the Danforth Street public parking lot.
The City's consultant will continue to advance the project design and 85% design plans are anticipated in May 2021. A neighborhood meeting will be scheduled once the 85% design stage has been completed.
Several neighborhood meetings, one public meeting and a meeting with business owners have been held to solicit feedback from the community. Additionally, several interim improvements have been made including reducing lane width on Concord St. to slow traffic, installing a “Do Not Block the Box” on Concord St. at Danforth St., and making Danforth St. two-ways to the parking lot entrance to improve access.
