Kelley Square Intersection Improvements

Massachusetts Department of Transportation
Worcester, Massachusetts

The Kelley Square Intersection Improvement will reconstruct this proverbially difficult and dangerous intersection as a modified roundabout. Other major components include the creation of a second, smaller roundabout at the intersection of Millbury Street and Arwick Avenue and the permanent reversal of Harding and Millbury Streets. HSH focus on this project has been construction period outreach to a diverse and heavily interested community. Outreach has been performed in English, Spanish, Polish, and Twi – the language spoken in Ghana.

Major outreach tools have included public presentations, a project newsletter, weekly progress emails, and a dedicated project hotline available in English, Spanish, and Polish. The project has also included direct flyer drops in the project area, both to highlight upcoming public meetings and major traffic changes.
