East Milton Square Reconstruction

Town of Milton
Milton, Massachusetts

This project improves traffic operations and creates a safe mode of transportation for vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians. It also provides improvements to the Honorable M. Joseph Manning Community Park to create a more enjoyable and inviting urban environment and improve mobility for all users throughout East Milton Square. The project involved upgrading the traffic signal equipment at all intersections within the Square; new pavement, sidewalks, ADA ramps, separated and on-road bike lanes; and all new signing and striping. Conditions for all users of the Square were improved and it created a stronger and more effective public resource. 

HSH worked with the Town, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), and a landscape architect to re-design the park area including a transportation easement where Adams Street formerly cut through the deck. This space will act as a shared space for bicycles and pedestrians with access for maintenance and emergency vehicles. The final design includes Adaptive Signal Technology throughout East Milton Square which improves traffic operations. It also includes repairs to the bridge deck over I-93.
