The East Milton Square project is underway and will continue under the direction of design engineering firm Howard/Stein-Hudson Associates Inc. Already, improvements have been made to the traffic pattern. Adams Street has been closed to traffic through East Milton Square all year, and recently the orange barrels blocking the road were removed. In their place are mounds of earth covered by grass which will soon be replaced by landscaped plantings at a cost of $2,000, Town Planner William Clark told selectmen at a recent meeting. The town is negotiating a contract with Howard/Stein-Hudson, and construction should begin in a year, Clark said. The project will create between 30 and 40 new parking spaces in East Milton Square and will make the area friendlier to pedestrians and cyclists, said Clark.
