Construction work to resume in Jax Square-temp. disruption to SW Corridor Path


Please contact me at or 522-2424 w/ any questions about the construction.

As part of the Jackson Square Redevelopment Initiative, the infrastructure improvement work will continue this spring. Work will be done at the intersection of Lamartine and Centre Streets that will include portions of the SW Corridor bike and pedestrian paths.  Our goal is to minimize the impact on bikers and pedestrians and to keep any closing of the paths to a minimum. However, please be advised that the work may temporarily disrupt usage of the SW Corridor Path and the intersection of Lamartine and Centre Streets near the Jackson Square T Station. Please exercise caution during the construction period and keep an eye out for construction and safety personaell.


anticipated timeline

-Work will begin as early as the week of March 28th

-Construction will last for 6-8 weeks with a goal to finish work by the end of May.


Temporarily Impact on Users    

-The goal is to keep at least one path (pedestrian & biker) open throughout construction. For safety reasons there may be a need to dismount bikes and walk them for a short distance. 

-Sidewalk access will remain accessible to all users including those with limited mobility.


Improvement for all users

-New sidewalks and street lights

-New crosswalks across Centre & Lamartine Streets.

-Centre St. crosswalks will be wider to accommodate bikers & other users

-Centre St. crosswalk (the one connecting the path) will be moved farther east to allow for a more direct route to the SW Corridor path.

-Wider ramps

-Wider “bump outs” on Centre St., which will shorten the distance between sidewalks

-The corner abutting Bromley-Heath: the dirt section will be paved and the fence along Centre St. (closest to T Station) will be pulled back to expand the width of the sidewalk near the crosswalk.

-New traffic signals will increase the overall safety of the intersection.
