New Wayfinding Signs Installed in Brighton

New Wayfinding Signs Installed in Brighton

On Tuesday June 13th, 2023, WalkMassachusetts installed wayfinding signs in Brighton to make walking more accessible and straightforward in the area. This project is part of the larger research project Community Walks, which is in partnership with Boston Medical Center (BMC) and Boston Housing Authority (BHA). Designed by Nina Garfinkle, principal of Garfinkle Design and a WalkMassachusetts Board member, the signs point pedestrians towards local destinations with clear markings of walking and biking distances.

WalkMassachusetts Deputy Director of Advocacy Brendan Kearney and Board Member Nina Garfinkle install wayfinding signs along the sidewalk. These signs direct pedestrians to local parks, the library, Brighton Center, and other nearby points of interest.

Wayfinding signs encourage people to choose active modes of transportation in a way that is both safe and easy. The new signs in Brighton will help various community members, including residents of the Faneuil Gardens Boston Housing Development buildings, walk with more ease.

Staff Member Iolando Spinola and Summer Intern Stella Pintar are joined by Gianna Fernandez, a Boston Medical Center Healthy Living Advocate (HLA).

In total, 49 new signs were put up in the Brighton area. WalkMassachusetts appreciates our partnership with BMC and BHA and is excited to bring this project to areas around Boston. If you see one of these signs, be sure to scan the QR code to find maps as well as more information about the various walking routes. Additionally, feel free to explore the Community Walks page on our website to learn more about this project.
