Description

Intersection crossing distance too wide for pedestrians.

Due to the oddly angled intersection of State, Mechanic and East Streets, crossing distances for pedestrians are very wide - 75 feet across Mechanic Street, 85 feet across East Street, and nearly 100 feet across State Street to the park. This might be an opportunity for curb bump outs, outdoor seating, and upgraded bus stops to narrow crossing distances and create a sense of place at this intersection. It seems appropriate timing for improvements at this location now that the State Street bridge is open.
