Cambridge Street (Allston) Safety Improvements

We are designing safety improvements for Cambridge Street, between Harvard Avenue and Soldiers Field Road in Allston.

Cambridge Street will be redesigned and constructed with a future project, the Allston Multimodal Project. Until then, we are proposing changes to address the most serious safety concerns on the corridor.

Project Information

Working with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, we are designing:

  • A crosswalk at the on-ramp. It's located on the south side of Cambridge Street, between North Harvard Street and Sorrento Street
  • Shortened mixing zones between bicyclists and right-turning drivers.
  • Physical separation for the bicycle lanes. The width is enough to support street sweeping and snow plowing equipment.

Our plans for Cambridge Street include only those changes that we can accomplish in the near-term. We are not proposing major construction. 

Project Updates


We hosted an open house for the project on September 25, 2019, at the Honan-Allston Library. We collected written and verbal comments from residents.
