The Stonybrook neighborhood’s Slow Streets program is in the “final stages” of design and will be implemented sometime this year, according to Boston Transportation Department (BTD) spokesperson Tracey Ganiatsos.
The Slow Streets program is part of the City’s Vision Zero project, which is a commitment of resources to eliminating fatal and serious traffic crashes by 2030. The effort is being led by BTD in collaboration with other City departments, including Public Works, the Boston Police Department, and Emergency Medical Services.
The program will install speed humps and “Welcome mats,” which will state the speed limit on the street, among other changes in the Stonybrook neighborhood. For more information, visit visionzeroboston.org.
“We’re in the final stages of design for Stonybrook,” said Ganiatsos in an email. “We have incorporated feedback received at the September meeting and via phone calls, mail, and email afterward. We don’t anticipate another meeting, as the majority of comments were fully supportive of the plan as presented and expressed a desire to implement it straight-away. However, if the community requests another meeting, we are happy to hold it.”
