Project Updates


On Thursday, May 2, 2024, we hosted a virtual public meeting to share an update on projects in the Back Bay neighborhood. The meeting was publicized on our project websites, via email to subscribers to the Boylston Street, Berkeley Street and Connect Downtown lists, and on Streets Cabinet social media channels. Additionally, Neighborhood Services and elected leaders publicized the meeting to local stakeholders.

Design completed - Construction update
  • Boylston Street Bus and Bike Lane
  • Berkeley Street Better Bike Lane - Modified
  • Clarendon Street Bus Lane
In Design
  • Beacon Street and Arlington Street - Modified
  • Dartmouth Street Better Bike Lane - New
  • Dartmouth/Stuart Safety Improvements - New

We share the data inputs and results of our traffic analysis to support the redesign of the Beacon Street/Berkeley Street intersection in Back Bay.

How we design traffic signals:

  1. Gather traffic data to understand current conditions.
  2. Use traffic modeling software to test different designs.
  3. Our goal is to find a balance between safety, access, and keeping traffic moving smoothly for everyone.
