The state plans to unveil three proposals to improve safety and access for pedestrians and cyclists crossing Perkins Street and Francis Parkman Drive to get to and from Jamaica Pond in Jamaica Plain, officials said.

The results of a recently-completed draft study, including three potential solutions suggested by the study, will be presented for public feedback at a meeting scheduled for Wednesday, June 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Arnold Arboretum Visitor Center, or Hunnewell Building, at 125 Arborway, the state’s Department of Conservation and Recreation said in a press release.

The department and the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, and State Representative Jeffrey Sanchez will co-host the meeting, the release said.

The presentation will be posted online soon after the public meeting at: http://www.mass.gov/dcr/news/publicmeetings/parkwaysmaterials.htm. For questions about the meeting, call 617-626-4974 or e-mail DCR.Updates@state.ma.us.

In recent years, the state has completed a few projects to improve pedestrian and bike safety around other areas of Jamaica Pond, including by installing new traffic lights, signs, crosswalks and other road markings.
