12-19under_signal_controlThe Casey Arborway project continued to make progress towards completion in 2016.  Among the milestones is the transition from Shea Circle to Shea Square.

Eastbound traffic (towards Franklin Park) and westbound traffic (towards the Arnold Arboretum) on the mainline Arborway will flow through Shea Square as a signalized intersection for the first time.  Eastbound traffic from the frontage road passing in front of Arborway Gardens and the West Roxbury District Court will be introduced into Shea Square, ending the need for this traffic to detour via American Legion Highway to access Circuit Drive or the mainline Arborway westbound.

East of Shea Square, the new signal at Cemetery Road is operational, and by the end of December, both east and westbound traffic will travel along its permanent alignment between the Cemetery Road intersection and Shea Square.  Installation of new drainage structures will continue along the Arborway adjacent to the Forest Hills Cemetery driveway into 2017.

The transition to Shea Square delivers important benefits.  As signal control is initiated at the square, signals are coordinated from this location to the Arborway at South Street for the first time.  New, signal protected crosswalks will also be initiated improving connections for cyclists and pedestrians traveling between points west, Franklin Park, and Forest Hills Cemetery.

Please check the Casey Arborway Project website for the latest information on project work through early 2017.
