Slow Streets Program

  • The Boston Neighborhood Slow Streets Program is a component of the Vision Zero safety agenda established in the City of Boston as a priority of Go Boston 2030, the City’s long term transportation plan.
  • The Slow Streets Program focuses on calming traffic and improving safety on less-busy, residential streets.
  • Neighborhoods associations, community groups, faith-based institutions and other organized groups of neighbors are invited to apply to the Program.
  • The Program works with residents to review an area, identify opportunities, and implement changes to slow traffic speeds and improve safety.
  • Because of the many reasons for traffic calming in the area (outlined in the map below), the Charlesgate Alliance is applying on behalf of the neighborhood.
