Audubon Circle is a historically significant gateway from the north into Boston and the Emerald Necklace park system. Located at the intersection of Beacon Street and Park Drive, Audubon Circle has a history of speeding and traffic accidents. The new design will improve safety by eliminating slip lanes, controlling left turns, and adding bicycle lanes on Beacon Street. A new urban design concept will re-emphasize the historic circle with benches, walls, trees and planters that will green the space and treat stormwater from the streets and sidewalks.
The project is being designed by the City of Boston using state funding and has a construction budget of approximately $5.5 million.
