At a meeting last week, the Board of Selectmen approved changes to the intersection of Burrill Street, Humphrey Street, and Monument Avenue. Presented by the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization as part of its community transportation technical assistance program, the change includes taking a small section of Burrill Street and making it one way, which will allow cars to access the street from Humphrey, but not allow direct access to Humphrey from Burrill Street. The project is expected to cost $10,000. “It’s not an expensive plan; it just changes the traffic flow so it’s safer,” said the board’s chairwoman, Jill Sullivan. “I think it’s going to work out great.”
