Walking around the Woburn Common

WalkBoston participated in a MassDOT Road Safety Audit yesterday around the Woburn Common. Few pedestrians venture to the beautiful common due to the long crossing distances, complicated vehicular turning movements, and unpredictable driver behavior. Drivers, focused on maneuvering through multiple lanes of traffic, often neglect to check the crosswalks for people walking before accelerating into their lane. The group talked about short-, mid-, and long-term improvements to make the area safer for all road users. Plans are in the works to totally rethink the way people move around the common.
