Six Corners Intersection Improvements

The current concept for the Six Corners project resulted from the neighborhood working with local students. The concept was developed over the course of several neighborhood and public meetings. The Six Corners intersection became a focus due to its unusual configuration and significant accident history, which placed it on the list of the top crash sites in the region. The preferred design was a roundabout and due to a fully funded State grant the project will move forward.

 The proposed roundabout will include aesthetic improvements to the intersection, improved safety for both pedestrians and motorists, reduced waiting times for traffic, simplification of the difficult geometry of the current intersection, as well as eliminating the cost of maintaining traffic signals. The roundabout also offers the potential for unique landscaping of center island/roadway to the neighborhood. The design was submitted for MassWorks construction funding and awarded funding in 2015.

Construction began in May of 2019 and is expected to continue until November of 2020. Vehicular motorists are advised to use caution or seek alternate routes while the intersection remains under construction.
