Lexington Center Streetscape Project
Myths and Facts
Myth: Traffic lights at the Woburn St / Mass Ave intersection will cost millions of dollars.
Facts: Traffic lights will cost in the vicinity of $200,000, just under 10% of the cost of the Woburn St portion of Center Streetscape Project ($2,700,000) that was requested at the 2015 Town Meeting, and just 2½% of the anticipated cost of the entire Center Streetscape Project. And remember: the major cost of that intersection is rebuilding the roadway, which has to be done anyway.
