Click through for a larger image to read the notice. Key points:

  • Construction starting this month and taking place Mon-Fri, 7am-3pm
  • Upgrades to existing traffic signals within the project limits
  • Road paving within the Broadway project limits and at the Pocasset Avenue/Plainfield Street intersection
  • The addition of a striped bike lane in each direction within the Broadway project limits
  • Replacement of existing sidewalks in poor condition within the Broadway project limits
  • Coordinating the traffic signal systems on Broadway

Remember the city started planning for bike lanes in May 2008? Neither do I.
