Mayor Walsh opens East Boston’s Central Square
September 12, 2017
Today the dream of a reimagined Central Square was realized by the East Boston community. With the park and roadway construction complete, Mayor Walsh cut the ribbon, ushering a new era for the residents. We are pleased to have led the planning, design, and construction of the project. Klopfer Martin provided an inspiring park design that is both unique and functional.
Organizing vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic in a more cohesive form allowed us to increase the footprint and shorten the pedestrian cossing distance to the park as well as widen sidewalks to provide for outdoor restaurant seating.
“Seeing Central Square blossom is so gratifying” says Keri Pyke, Principal of Transportation Planning, “Following a project from the initial planning phase to construction is our passion, and realizing the finished product is the intended goal”
