PB Projects Are Popping Up Around Town


The new water bottle fill station at Hoyt Field (PB2 winning project)

As our current Budget Delegates are researching the 608 ideas that were submitted during the fourth PB cycle, winning projects from past PB cycles are popping up around Cambridge.

Last month, Public Works completed installation of the five water bottle fill stations from PB2 in Donnelly Field, Greene Rose Heritage Park, Hoyt Field, Russell Field, and St. Peters Field in Danehy Park.  Final locations for the four additional bottle fill stations that won in PB3 have not yet been confirmed.

Community Development recently installed the final bike repair station from PB1. You can find the eight PB bike repair stations at Alewife Linear Park (Russell Field), Central Square (near the post office), Danehy Park, Inman Square, Harvard Square (Gen. MacArthur Square), North Point (Education Circle), Porter Square shopping center, and Riverside City Park. Click here to see these locations on a map.


Two-way separated bike lane on Brattle Street

In July, Community Development and the Traffic Department installed separated bicycle lanes from PB2 on Brattle Street (two-way lane from Eliot Street to Mason Street) and Massachusetts Avenue (one-way lane from Trowbridge Street to Quincy Street).  Check them out next time you're riding near Harvard Square!

In addition, excavation activities for the Central Square public toilet from PB1 began in early August on Western Avenue just past the intersection with Massachusetts Avenue.

You can always follow the progress of winning PB projects by checking out updates for the different cycles, so stay tuned for more!
