    Audubon Circle Reconstruction

    The Audubon Circle Reconstruction project is one of the priority projects identified in the Fenway-Longwood-Kenmore Transportation and Pedestrian Safety Action Plan. The Boston Public Works Department advertised the project for bids during Summer 2016. The project includes sidewalk improvements, new bike lanes, curb extensions, narrower travel lanes, street trees, and other landscape improvements along Beacon Street intended to improve the safety and comfort of this important and historic gateway into the City. 

    September 20, 2011 ACNA Meeting

    A meeting was held with the Board of the Audubon Circle Neighborhood Association to address concerns about the loss of the median and the safety of pedestrian crossings. A six-foot wide pedestrian refuge island (similar to what exists today) has been added to the design at Miner Street. The refuge island in combination with the addition of bike lanes, narrower travel lanes, new street trees, and new curb extensions are intended to slow traffic and improve the comfort and safety of this pedestrian crossing. 

    The meeting also included a brief presentation by Boston Water and Sewer Commission on work they will be doing in 2012 to upgrade the water, sewer and drainage systems in advance of the street reconstruction project.
