American engineering service provider Bowman Consulting Group has announced the conclusion of the Inman Square intersection safety improvement project in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US.
Inman Square was considered a high-risk intersection before the improvement project began.
Bowman’s team collaborated with local stakeholder groups to create an intersection design that met the demands and objectives indicated in numerous municipal plans, including the Vision Zero target.
Added safety improvements comprise separate cycle lanes with protected phasing, entirely accessible sidewalks and crossing islands, the inclusion of floating bus stops, and a transit queue-jump track.
Bowman New England urban planning team lead Christi Apicella said: “Our ability to listen to the community and develop a design that effectively addressed local needs is a testament to the expertise of our team.
“This project is a shining example of what is possible when local needs, safety and sustainability are prioritised in an urban neighbourhood.”

Kleinfelder was chosen for the project in 2017 as part of an on-call services contract with the City of Cambridge.
Transportation engineering and planning company McMahon Associates was appointed to lead urban planning, transportation reports, and street designs from the project’s inception.
In May 2022, Bowman closed the acquisition of McMahon.
Kleinfelder vice-president Rebecca Weig said: “Kleinfelder’s partnership with McMahon, now Bowman, has allowed us to leverage our expertise, work together as a team, and help the city transform Inman Square into a safer and more vibrant community.”
