Chinatown

This page contains information about the Neighborhood Slow Streets plan for the Chinatown neighborhood.

这一页资料包含有关唐人街附近的邻区慢街道计划的信息。

Neighborhood Slow Streets is a new approach to traffic calming requests in Boston. We're focused on street designs that self-enforce slower speeds and safer behaviors. Through this program, we aim to:

  • reduce the number and severity of crashes on residential streets
  • lessen the impacts of traffic, and
  • add to the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

Chinatown is one of five communities that was selected to join the program in 2017.


邻区慢街道是波士顿交通宁静请求的新方法。 我们专注于街头设计,自我执行较慢的速度和更安全的行为。 通过该计划,我们的目标是:

  • 减少社区街道上的车祸次数和严重程度
  • 减少交通的影响,和
  • 增加我们社区的生活质量。

唐人街是2017年入选该计划的五个社区之一。

Meeting flier     会议资料

We joined community members for a neighborhood walk on Tuesday, October 3, at 5:30 p.m. We started at Kneeland Street and Harvard Street. What we learned from the walk will supplement information:

  • received in the application
  • reported through the Vision Zero Safety Concerns map, and
  • collected through speed and volume studies. 

Neighbors were welcomed to join all or some of the walk. The walk was not the only time or place that neighbors can provide input on the Neighborhood Slow Streets project. Neighbors can also share their concerns on the Vision Zero Safety Concerns map or at future public meetings about the project.

Zone Map

Bright blue square.
Zone streets* - Streets that we will evaluate for traffic calming improvements

Light blue square
Vision Zero Streets - Streets that are being considered for changes as a part of the separate Vision Zero project

Dark gray square

Other streets - Streets that are outside of the zone, regardless of who owns them, or streets that are within the zone boundaries and will not be evaluated for traffic calming.

*All streets that we will consider for changes are marked as "zone streets." During the planning process, we may determine that some streets won’t see any changes. We generally will not consider any additional streets that are not marked as "zone streets."
