Beginning later this year, 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 reconsider the surface roadway configuration and pavement markings in line with the City's transportation goals of promoting sustainable, multi-modal transportation and improving traffic safety for all users.

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.
