To ensure safe pedestrian passage, pedestrian routes in the vicinity of the Hancock Adams Common construction project will be re-directed around the work zone starting on Saturday, Feb. 10, officials announced Friday.
Pedestrian travel along Hancock Street will be temporarily re-routed along Washington Street and Temple Street. Pedestrian access to Quincy City Hall, the Quincy Center MBTA Station, the United First Parish Church and the Hancock Cemetery will also be temporarily re-routed due to the on-going park construction. Existing access to the Hancock Cemetery via the former Hancock Street area will be temporarily closed and re-routed.
The Temporary Pedestrian Access Plan (shown above) depicts temporary access routes for each of these facilities.
Church access is available utilizing the sidewalk on the north side of the Church off Washington Street.
City Hall access will continue to be available from Hancock Street along the sidewalk adjacent to the Monroe Building to the City Hall walkway.
Quincy Center MBTA Station access will continue to be available from Hancock Street along the sidewalk adjacent to the Monroe Building.
Access to the Hancock Cemetery will also be available from Hancock Street via the sidewalk adjacent to the Monroe Building and walkway running parallel with the MBTA tracks.
The temporary Hancock Cemetery access route includes paved surfaces, grassed surfaces and steps.
Regular access to facilities will be re-established July 31, according to officials.
