Mind the Bump | Centers And Squares

Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Mind the Bump

Somerville and Cambridge are making a lot of “traffic calming” improvements around town.

Bumps, bulbs, islands in strange places – the idea is to eliminate straight-aways and get cars to slow down.  Not a bad goal but it can make urban driving even more of a challenge.

I thought the new street crossing humps / bumps / plateaus – whatever you want to call them – on Somerville Ave were pretty intense but nothing matches the big new hump on Cameron Avenue at the bike path crossing close to the Cambridge / Somerville line.

This can’t be the final version. Even though they seem to have done some road resurfacing the incline is still way too steep.

In fact, the new pavement makes the hump less obvious.  It caught me by surprise the other day – and even at a fairly slow speed – it’s right before the turn onto Mass Ave after all – the impact on my car was intense enough that I feared my next call would be Triple A – or the dentist – that bump packs a wallop.

Mind the Bump.
