Why East Arlington?
The Town of Arlington has finished an extensive project redesigning and improving the Mass. Avenue corridor in East Arlington. They added a bike lane, made some of the sidewalks wider, and installed new sidewalks and street furniture -- benches, lamps, planters, bike racks. They repaved the street, repainted all the crosswalks, and installed new traffic lights.
This big project wasn't easy, but the results are impressive. The Town and APA are now working together to organize public art initiatives which celebrate the successful conclusion of this work while building neighborhood identity and the sense of community in East Arlington.
