Project Description:
The City of Chelsea is applying for Safe Routes to School funding to finance the improvements to an intersections adjacent to Chelsea's busiest elementary school, the Mary C. Burke Complex. This intersections guides traffic along a critical urban freight corridor, Eastern Avenue, and a local arterial, Stockton Street. The intersection carries vehicular, bicyclist, and pedestrian traffic from dense neighborhoods in Chelsea and to East Boston and the greater region from Revere. Improvements for this intersection would include new pedestrian signals, ADA compliant sidewalks and ramps, freshly laid out pedestrian medians, traffic calming measures via geometric changes to the roadway layout, and would effectively remove an outdated roadway approach to Eastern Avenue which would subsequently be transformed into a pocket park. Overall, these improvements will substantially transform the existing layout of the roadway and will provide meaningful pedestrian improvements for nearly 2,000 elementary school children, and over 400 faculty and staff that travel to and from the Mary C. Burke Complex on a regular basis.
