Dudley Square Design Project

The Transportation Department initiative and community planning process will develop roadway, intersection, and streetscape design plans for construction in Dudley Square.

The Dudley initiative aims to modernize existing conditions and bolster the ongoing municipal and private investment projects in Dudley Square including projects like the Bolling Building and former Area B-2 Police Station site.

The project will consider a range of improvements for:

  • traffic and parking
  • buses, pedestrians, and bicycles
  • accessibility, and
  • the overall safety and beauty of the streets and sidewalks.

Special emphasis will be given to plans that on focus on all modes of transportation and build on previous planning initiatives. The limits of work are generally bounded by:

  • Dudley Street between Shawmut Avenue and Harrison Avenue
  • Washington Street between Shawmut Extension and Melnea Cass, and
  • Warren Street between Kearsage and Washington Street. 

We'll continue to partner with the Roxbury community to complete final design during the upcoming year with construction expected to begin in the first quarter of 2018. The City has invested $600,000 for the design budget, along with construction funding of approximately $9 million.
