Ames Street Community Meeting, February 2019

March 4, 2019

On February 28, 2019, MIT, Cambridge’s Traffic and Parking Department, and the State Department of Conservation and Recreation held a community meeting about Ames Street. In the meeting the team reviewed plans for:

  • a two-way protected bike facility on the east side of Ames Street, from Main Street to Memorial Drive,
  • and an improved crossing at the intersection of Ames Street and Memorial Drive.

These changes are conditions of an MIT Cambridge Planning Board Special Permit, as traffic mitigation for the MIT Kendall Square at MIT project. The new facilities will improve safety for people walking, biking, and driving in the area. In the meeting community members were given the opportunity to review the plans and ask questions before implementation.

Slides from the presentation are available here.
