Tremont Street Pedestrian and Cyclist Improvements Enhance Safe Travel in the South End

May 29, 2024

Howard Stein Hudson (HSH) is celebrating the completion of their latest project in Boston’s South End neighborhood. As part of an on-call Active Transportation Improvements contract with the Boston Transportation Department, HSH implemented pedestrian and cyclist safety improvements along Tremont Street. The transformative project enhanced safety for the most vulnerable road users, accessibility, and overall mobility within the project area.

Originally identified through Go Boston 2030 as a priority project to become a Neighborhood Complete Streets corridor, improvements on Tremont Street promote safe travel for all modes of transportation. The design provides floating bus stops, protected bike lanes, ADA-compliant pedestrian ramps and sidewalks, raised crosswalks, and pedestrian protection islands, while minimizing the loss of on-street parking. HSH also supported the City of Boston with construction phase services and neighborhood outreach throughout the project.

With offices in Boston, Bridgewater, Chelmsford, and Worcester, HSH is one of the premier firms designing pedestrian and cyclist improvements across the Commonwealth. A long-time partner with the City of Boston, the engineering and planning firm is advancing connectivity and safety improvements throughout the City’s active transportation networks.

The Tremont Street pedestrian and cyclist improvements represent a significant safety and connectivity upgrade for the City of Boston and its residents.  It epitomizes the City’s commitment to providing safer, more accessible streets for all.
