The City of Somerville will be resurfacing the roadway and sidewalks of Pearl Street between McGrath Highway and Mount Vernon Street. This project presents an opportunity to improve the experience of people traveling on Pearl Street while promoting sustainability and improving traffic safety for all users.

This project will include traffic calming interventions such as raised intersections/crosswalks, speed humps, and neighborhood traffic circles. The project will not include any utility work below the surface of the road, nor will it include new traffic signals or major network redesign such as turning Pearl St into a one-way street.

A note about the scope of this project: Unlike a full street reconstruction (think Somerville Ave or Beacon St), this is primarily a resurfacing project. It includes new pavement and ADA accessible sidewalks, new roadway markings, and limited changes to the curb like bump outs. We need your help to prioritize the most important locations for improvements, since we're unable make wholesale changes at every intersection with this project. Please consider this as you add pins to the map.
