Note on Special May 2001 Tramsportation Safety Meeting

PSNA invited Cambridge city officials to discuss the current status of a plan that began in 1997 with the Citizen Advisory Committee to recommend ways make improvements that would make Porter Square safer for pedestrians and bicyclists at our special May meeting.

Come and discuss the status of this plan that affects both Cambridge and Somerville residents. See how we can work together to make it happen. Your input and support are vital. Learn more about background of the Citizen Advisory Committee's work and take a look a the plan accomplished most of the committee's goals on the Improving Pedestrian Safety in Porter Square page. Also check out the details of traffic light cycles that would make the plan work.
