MELROSE — As part of the ongoing Essex Street revitalization project, the City will be changing Willow Street, between Essex Street and West Foster Street, permanently to one-way traffic.

Traffic flow will only be allowed from Essex Street proceeding southerly toward West Foster Street. This change was approved in 2015 by the Traffic Commission after a detailed public outreach effort and public discussion.

This change is scheduled to take effect on the morning of Monday, April 25. Sign boards will be posted in advance of the change to make neighbors and motorists aware of the effective date. One-way and do not enter signage will be erected and will take effect on the morning of April 25.

If residents have any questions, they should contact Larry Erekson in the engineering division at 781-979-4172.
