Working with the Charles River Watershed Association, and with partial funding from EPA, the Town is reconstructing Edenfield Ave. using a “green streets” approach. The road is currently 34 feet in width, which is exceedingly wide for a residential street. In accordance with Town policies, we will be providing a “road diet” for the street whereby the width is reduced to 26 feet. This will allow for a reduction in impervious area, better aesthetics for the neighborhood, and traffic calming.
As part of the greening, the Town will be installing stormwater management systems to permit percolation of stormwater into the ground and pollutant reduction.
