on Southern Ave. by Talbot Ave.

In an effort to slow traffic and create safer transportation behaviors, a new rotary has been installed on Southern Ave. This rotary is part of the Talbot-Norfolk Triangle – one of two pilot communities that joined the City of Boston Neighborhood Slow Streets program in 2016.

The new addition to the neighborhood was spotted by Adam Pieniazak and posted on twitter

Neighborhood Slow Streets is a new approach to traffic calming requests in Boston focused on street designs that self-enforce slower speeds and safer behaviors. The goals of this program:

  • reduce the number and severity of crashes on residential streets
  • lessen the impacts of traffic, and
  • add to the quality of life in our neighborhoods.
