CAMBRIDGE- COMMON IMPROVEMENTS AT WATERHOUSE STREET, MASS AVE & GARDEN STREET
This project will improve bicycle and pedestrian conditions in and around the Common, reconstruct the pathway system and implement much needed landscape improvements. In addition to reconstructing all pathways in bituminous concrete with brick edging, some pathways will be re-aligned to meet pedestrian desire lines. Pedestrian access to the Common will be improved at entryways. Signage and lighting improvements will be made to aid pedestrians. Landscape work will include removal of excess paving, outdated planters and benches, and un-used utility poles. Over 100 new trees will be planted. A new multi-use path will be constructed through Flagstaff Park to make the connection from Harvard Square to Mass. Avenue northbound.
