The City is making intermediate changes to Porter Square by the end of 2018, including signal timing and paint. Here is a link to the City’s plan, which was presented on May 8, 2018.
In July 2018, the City released a memo addressing this design. Updates include a raised cycle track along Somerville Avenue, from White Street to Massachusetts Avenue, for cyclists to turn right.
