The Cambridge Street project runs 1.5 miles in East Cambridge and connects the Cambridge Hospital through Inman Square to the Lechmere MBTA station, past businesses, residences, a school, a major courthouse, and several small public open spaces, such as Velucci Plaza. The City invested $8 million on a new streetscape with bicycle lanes, parallel parking and loading zones, neckdowns, crosswalks and sidewalks, drainage, planting, signage, public art, and two municipal parking lots. The project broke new ground in that the new lights are City-owned and the street and directional signs set a new city standard. Pam Shadley was Principal-in-Charge and Prime Consultant while with another firm for this complex project spanning eight years and which required extensive public and committee meetings. The landscape architects collaborated with two artists and the City staff to create a site design that balances the needs of this diverse, ethnic community with the goals of the City and with the project budget.
