The City of Newton is planning to implement improvements along the Washington Street Corridor with a pilot project between Chestnut Street and Lowell Avenue. The pilot will aim to reallocate roadway space to create a more attractive, friendly welcoming environment for all travelers, with improved pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure for increased safety.

Before we begin the planning and design of this pilot, we would like to hear your feedback, experiences, and safety concerns.

Please note that this survey is intended for residents of Newton and those who frequent the Washington Street corridor between Chestnut Street and Lowell Avenue.

The pilot’s goals are to improve safety, visibility, comfort, and accessibility for everyone. The pilot will use low-cost methods and materials to test, monitor, and study improvements on the roadway within the short-term, while allowing for further adjustment following evaluation. The project will not provide permanent reconstruction to the Washington Street corridor.

This survey is estimated to take about 10 minutes to complete. Feedback provided in this survey will remain anonymous. Please respond by June 12.
