Kelley Square Improvement Project

Cars Traveling through Kelley Square Intersection

MassDOT, in coordination with the City of Worcester, is working on a project to improve safety and operations within the general Kelley Square area of Worcester. The project will address the safety and operational deficiencies all users face, including motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians, while also supporting the local businesses and residents who call Kelley Square their home.

Main Street Reimagined

Construction and Traffic on Main Street Near City Hall

The City is embarking on a long-overdue $11 million top-to-bottom reconstruction of Main Street. This is not simply a repaving project. We’re building a Main Street that is not just a way to drive from Point A to Point B… but a 21st century Main Street, that embraces modern urban design philosophies, that is built to encourage parking your car and walking to multiple experiences, all throughout downtown. We want downtown to be a destination, not a waypoint, and this new Main Street will deliver on that vision.

The project provides a comprehensive solution to the sewerage needs of the area and eliminates the need to operate the Broadmeadow Brook and Grafton Street pump station
