In an effort to improve cycling safety, the city of Cambridge has restricted left turns in Inman square.
Effective November 3rd, the Department of Traffic, Parking, and Transportation will restrict several left turn movements in Inman Square in order to improve the safe operation of this complex intersection.
The following turning movement prohibitions will go into effect on this date:
– No left turn from Hampshire Street southbound (towards Kendall Square) to Cambridge Street eastbound.
– No left turn from Hampshire Street northbound (towards Somerville) to Cambridge Street westbound
– No left turn from Cambridge Street westbound to Antrim Street southbound.
In coming months, the Department will study the impacts of these changes on safety in Inman Square as well as evaluating the impacts on surrounding intersections and neighborhoods.
Variable message boards and advance warning signs will be in place to advise drivers of the change.
For more information on safety improvements in Inman Square, please visit our Inman Square Transportation Safety page.
