An upcoming meeting will give locals a chance to weigh in on the city’s plans to make changes to King Street where it runs past the Bradlee Shopping Center.

The city is considering adding bike lanes and an additional sidewalk — none exists on the northern side of the street. A few alternatives are being considered for the service road that runs parallel to King Street, including two-way traffic with transit improvements or one-way traffic with a bus lane.

The virtual meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 16 at 6 p.m. Participants must register in advance.

“The community is invited to ask questions and provide feedback at the meeting,” the project website said.

The city is currently in the conceptual design phase of the project and will move into detailed design work sometime in 2026, with construction starting sometime after spring 2027.
