GoLowell: Downtown Lowell Multimodal Complete Streets Plan


GoLowell is a year-long process to plan for a safer, healthier, and more enjoyable multimodal transportation system for all residents and visitors to Lowell.

Tell us what you think of our ideas: An improved Downtown Shuttle direct to downtown, a rush hour Crosstown Express from Drum Hill to Stadium Plaza, a citywide bike network, and citywide pedestrian improvements.
