VIDEO: Animated Aerial View of Kelley Square’s Peanut-Shaped Design

WORCESTER – The Massachusetts Dept. of Transportation [MassDOT] has created an animated video of an aerial view of Worcester’s Kelley Square’s — titled “Kelley Square Reimagined” — that shows what the traffic flow will be like when the roundabout is redesigned with a new, hybrid design — otherwise known as the “peanut shaped” roundabout. 


The video shows each vantage point of Kelley Square’s future look from every street outlet.

The animation, however, doesn’t reflect the current traffic volume at Kelley Sq. and only uses the animated vehicles as visual references.

In the video, viewers can see that the new roundabout contains two lanes of traffic, the crosswalks are painted a shade of red for safety, and the inside of the roundabout contains green space for planting trees or putting up monuments or artwork.

The design also calls for additional lighting and trees to be placed around Kelley Sq.
