Arborway

Arborway, between Jamaica Pond and the Arboretum, has 8 lanes of through traffic. This student project, done in 2008, shows how the road’s footprint can be severely reduced, creating 4.5 net acres of accessible parkland and continuous walking / cycling paths on both sides, while still carrying the through traffic. The two large roundabouts are replaced with signalized double intersections,¬†one of them using a crossover.
