Traffic Alert: New Traffic Pattern - Somerset and Kennebec Streets

The City’s Public Works Department announced a new traffic pattern on Somerset and Kennebec Streets beginning Thursday, November 18.  Kennebec Street has been realigned between Hanover Street and Preble Street, now intersecting with Somerset Street. Somerset Street now also continues between Elm Street and Preble Street. The Bayside Trail was also extended from Elm Street to Brattle Street.

This roadway reconstruction project included new granite curbing, drainage work, sidewalks, signage, push-button activated crosswalk lights, and street lighting. Temporary crosswalks and stop bars will be painted next week, weather permitting, and temporary traffic delays should be expected for that work. Final surface paving and final painting for the entire project area will be placed in the spring.
