Share the Scene:

On Monday, March 5, 2012, the Town of Milton tested a new traffic pattern through East Milton Square.

Originally set to be in place for between two and four weeks, the test never ended. The small portion of Adams Street that serves as an overpass over I-93 has remained closed. A barricade of broken bricks and no-mans-land pavement now blocks the previous one-way access over Adams to Quincy. For over four years, eastbound traffic has been redirected in a pseudo-rotary, making a right turn on Bryant Avenue and then a left on Boulevard Street (where it can get backed up all the way to Adams Street), followed by a left on to Granite Avenue and a right turn back on to Adams Street.

The traffic pattern was based on the recommendation from the East Milton Square Parking and Access Study, which was completed in 2011 by Howard/Stein-Hudson Associates Inc. The overpass was closed for a temporary traffic test in 2011.

What’s your opinion?

Do you think the Adams Street overpass should remain closed?

No. It should be reopened.
Yes. Keep it closed.

    Since the current traffic pattern has not resulted in an improvement to
    the congestion in E. Milton Square, would it be feasible to reopen the overpass for a trial period and study the change, if any. The traffic
    has become an overwhelming problem for the E. Milton neighborhood. We
    are becoming more and more isolated from the rest of the town of Milton.
