PETITION TO CHANGE STREET DIRECTION(S) BETWEEN BUNKER HILL AND MEDFORD STREETS

There are fifteen (15) streets connecting Bunker Hill and Medford Streets.  Only two neighborhood streets allow access to Bunker Hill Street from Medford Street.  Monument is a two way street and is in poor condition with parking on both sides, which makes it difficult at times to pass a car coming in the opposite direction, especially with snow accumulation.  Polk Street is a dedicated one way street to Bunker Hill with parking on both sides.  For ten (10) consecutive blocks you cannot go from Medford Street to Bunker Hill. The last stop is Sullivan Square where traffic is gridlocked with cars coming from Medford Street, Bunker Hill Street and Main Street, especially between   5 PM and 7PM.  With the construction of the Alford Street Bridge over the next six months and the work to begin on the North Washington Street Bridge, there is NO END IN SIGHT.  Sullivan Square is down to one lane and there is never a good time to venture beyond the fire station.  We are trapped within the town and not able to travel freely through the town because of these conditions. 

The current configuration no longer works.  We ask that you support the petition to have at least three (3) streets between Elm and Short Streets reversed to benefit the Charlestown Neighborhood.  We will have the petition available to sign on Saturday, October 13th and Sunday, October 14th in front of Whole Foods and CVS in the Bunker Hill Mall.
