Construction Begins on College Ave; Street Design Posted
Construction has now begun on College Ave new Powder House Circle and will proceed toward Davis Square over the course of the summer and fall. You will see sidewalks being rebuilt and curbs being reset, and there will be pedestrian detours and parking restrictions to accommodate this work. You can sign up for a weekly digest of updates on construction in the City of Somerville at this link and you can email construction related concerns and questions to email@example.com.
A StoryMap has been posted detailing the College Avenue street design here: https://bit.ly/CollegeAveProject. Now that the design has been finalized, the Mobility Division will seek final approval from the Traffic Commission for the curbside regulation changes needed to implement these improvements as well as for the parking mitigation plan.
Work is expected to be completed later this year or early in 2022. Construction will then proceed to Holland Street.
