Redesigning State Street

The City of Boston is currently in the process of redesigning State Street. Under the leadership of Boston Public Works (BPW), the project covers State Street between Court Street and the Greenway beginning with the installation of a temporary pilot program tied to the Healthy Streets initiative. The final renovation design is under development.

The project include installation of temporary barriers to provide a wider sidewalk and bike lane along the north side of State St. in coordination with ongoing utility work, in addition to lighting upgrades and safety improvements. BPW is asking for community feedback on project and Healthy Streets Pilot. Complete the survey here.
