Codman Square

The Vision Zero Task Force is exploring potential improvements to Talbot Ave and Norfolk St to slow drivers and improve safety for people who are walking, biking, and driving in Codman Square. The project extends along Talbot Ave from Norwell St to Washington St, including the intersection of Talbot Ave and Washington St, and along Norfolk St from Talbot Ave to New England Ave.

New Crosswalk Being Installed on Washington St near Epping St

The image to the left shows the completed crosswalk on Washington St, south of Epping St. It also shows the daylighting installed next to the curb and the tactical median in the middle of the street. These are just a few of the many changes that we’ve made to make Codman Square a safer place for people of all ages and abilities.

We will continue to take feedback from you, and others in the community, and make adjustments to this area as necessary.

New Crosswalk Being Installed on Washington St near Epping St

Thank you to everyone who has given their input during this process. We have now begun to move forward with implementing the plan and hope to continue to work with you as we move forward.

We recently started construction on a new crosswalk on Washington St just south of Epping St. This new crosswalk will let drivers know that there may be people walking across the street. We will also be installing daylighting and a tactical median at this location.

Daylighting increases safety by increasing visibility between people crossing the street, and people driving or biking down the street. Tactical medians help to increase driver’s awareness of the crosswalks and provide a place for people to pause and look for vehicles before they finish crossing the street.
