Lenox Town Center Walk Audit

Lenox Town Center Walk Audit

The town center of Lenox, Massachusetts is a compact, walkable destination for residents and visitors drawn to Lenox by Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and the town’s Berkshire mountain setting. Lenox has a population of just over 5,000 residents living in a primarily rural and small town development pattern. While the town centers provide infrastructure that supports walking, many of the rural roads connecting homes to the town centers of Lenox, Lenoxdale and New Lenox are narrow and do not have sidewalks. Route 7 and Route 20 (Veteran’s Memorial Highway) – a median-separated arterial with two travel lanes in each direction – run north/south through the middle of Lenox with only one signalized crossing that provides crosswalks and signals for walkers at Housatonic Street. Veteran’s Memorial Highway is seen as a significant barrier between the east and west sides of Lenox
