Virtual Meeting to Discuss Kensington Connector Revitalization Designs, May 3

Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, State Senator Pat Jehlen, State Representative Mike Connolly, City Council President and Ward 1 Councilor Matthew McLaughlin, and City of Somerville staff invite you to the second virtual public meeting to discuss the Kensington Connector Revitalization Project.  

The Kensington Connector is a 148-foot pedestrian and cyclist corridor below I-93 at Mystic Avenue in Somerville. It sits at the intersection of East Somerville, Winter Hill, and Assembly Square neighborhoods. This public space project seeks to beautify the corridor and advance safety improvements in coordination with the City’s Mobility Division and MassDOT to connect the neighborhoods more effectively and reclaim this underpass as a space for people.  

At this meeting, the City will provide updates on an art installation planned for this spring, ongoing Mobility and MassDOT work, and three proposed concept designs to permanently transform the Connector into an art-inclusive space. The designs are also posted on the project website, where residents can review and provide feedback. 

The meeting will be held virtually on Monday, May 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. Visit somervillema.gov/KensingtonConnector to learn more and register to attend.
