Shattuck Reconfiguration and Pedestrian Safety Project

The Shattuck Reconfiguration and Pedestrian Safety Project will repair and reconfigure Shattuck Avenue from Allston Way three blocks north through the Shattuck/University intersection.  The project will convert the west (southbound) section of Shattuck into a four-lane, two-way street, eliminating the current circuitous movement for northbound traffic at the Shattuck/University intersection, while the east (northbound) section of Shattuck will be narrowed to two lanes with angled parking to offset the loss of parking on the west leg of Shattuck.

Construction is estimated to begin in late January 2019, with an approximate duration of 24 months.  The project will be constructed in phases, with the intent to minimize disruption to ongoing activities in downtown.

For information on other current construction projects along the Shattuck corridor, please refer to the City’s website on Construction near Shattuck and University.
