BOSTON – Monday, June 6, 2022 – The City of Boston and Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) will launch Copley Connect, a ten day pilot that will open Dartmouth Street between Copley Square Park and the Boston Public Library to pedestrians, and close it to motor vehicle traffic. The street will be closed from Tuesday, June 7 to Friday, June 17 to study the future use of Dartmouth Street between Boylston Street and St. James Avenue. This area of Dartmouth Street will host numerous activities for the public to enjoy.
This includes food trucks, programming from the Boston Public Library, performances, as well as various activities for youth and families.
Opening Dartmouth Street to pedestrians will unify and complement planned initiatives and investments into Copley Square Park and the Public Library’s Plaza. The BPDA committed $200,000 to public realm and wayfinding planning in Copley Square, as part of the Winthrop Square project mitigation.
