The Future of Endicott and Bigelow Streets

Looking Down Endocott Street with Apartment Buildings on the Right and Cars Parked on the Left Side

The goals of the Endicott and Bigelow Streets Project are:

  • Increase safety for all modes of traffic.
  • Improve sidewalks to provide better access to Crompton Park.
  • Reduce heat and flooding using green infrastructure.
  • Improve ADA access and accommodations.
  • Improve aesthetics.

Project Overview

Endicott Street and Bigelow Street provide vital links between the Green Island Neighborhood, Crompton Park and the rest of the City. However, a high number of crashes and a lack of trees can make these streets feel unsafe or uninviting. This neighborhood is also prone to both flooding and intense summer heat, due to high amount of paved surfaces and low amount of vegetation. Using strategies outlined in the Green Worcester Plan and Worcester's Complete Streets policy, the City will develop, with community input, design changes to make these streets safer, more sustainable and more accessible for everyone, whether they are driving, biking, walking or using a wheelchair.
