MEDFORD- IMPROVEMENTS & REALIGNMENT ON CLIPPERSHIP DRIVE
Clippership Drive is currently two lanes with a sweeping alignment that encourages excessive speeds near an elderly housing complex. The master plan for Medford Square proposes to reduce the roadway width on Clippership Drive by eliminating one lane and providing a parking lane. Sidewalks will be provided on both sides of Clippership Drive with granite curbing.
The current project would also realign Clippership Drive away from the Mystic River to create more park space, while providing traffic calming near the elderly housing complex by removing the sweeping curve and introducing a stop condition on Clippership Drive. This alignment would also define development parcels along Clippership Drive.
