Pleasant Street Project

We're working to calm traffic and improve crosswalks for all members of the community.

We're beginning a new project on Pleasant Street between East Cottage Street and Sawyer Avenue. Our goal is to calm traffic speeds and make crosswalks better for kids, elders, and people with disabilities.
