Description: Located in a residential area, the existing segment of Seaver Street from Walnut Street to Blue Hill Avenue (approximately 4,200 linear feet) has been redesigned to improve operations and safety along the corridor. The successful design was the result of a dynamic public process with local associations and the community. Design improvements include roadway reconfiguration to accommodate all modes of travel (including the addition of bike lanes and sidewalks), pedestrian accessibility upgrades, new street lighting, new signs and pavement markings, and traffic control signal upgrades that link all signals in the corridor to the BTD control center. The design continues to accommodate two-way traffic and preserves existing parking, while improving safety and multimodal use of the street.
The design was a collaborative effort between the Boston Public Works Department, the Boston Street Lighting Department, and the Boston Transportation Department. The Boston Parks Department was a major contributor during the coordination process.
