City officials are moving forward with a redesign plan that will eventually change Dudley Square and its surrounding streets.

The Complete Streets project aims to ease traffic and improve connections for pedestrians, cyclists, public transit users, and cars in the bustling urban neighborhood.

A third public meeting to gather feedback from the community has been scheduled for Thursday, May 2, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Dudley Branch Library.

At past meetings officials with the Boston Transportation Department, the lead agency, discussed potential redesigns of the area and what residents would like to see improved.

Along with potential improvements to streetscapes, a final design could incorporate changes to the Dudley Bus Depot, the direction of certain streets, and the installation of a cycle-track.

Nothing, however, is final and BTD and its consultant team still have a ways to go before they begin any physical work on the $9-million project.

By the spring of 2013, BTD hopes to be at the 25 percent design phase, with construction expected to start in late 2013 and be completed before 2015.

The transportation department has created a website for the plan.
