WORCESTER – The Massachusetts Dept. of Transportation [MassDOT], in coordination with the City of Worcester, will be holding a Design Public Hearing on the Kelley Sq. Improvement Project on Wednesday, Feb. 27.

At the hearing, the project team will present the 25% design plans — which was developed based on public input received at three previous public workshops, a public information meeting, and from messages submitted via email to the project team.

The hearing will take place from 6 PM to 8 PM at Worcester Technical High School – 1 Skyline Dr. 

The project aims to improve safety and operations within the Kelley Square area of Worcester — Green Island & Canal District. The project will address the safety and operational deficiencies all users face, including pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists, while also supporting the local businesses and residents who call Kelley Square home.

According to MassDOT, there were 403 reported crashes between Jan. 2013 and Dec. 2016, including one fatality. Twenty-one of these crashes involved pedestrians and five involved bicyclists.
