I guess I didn't draw that parking lot very clearly, sorry. The end of Summer St, where it connects to Grove St, will be turned into parking, approximately doubling the number of spaces in the small triangle. This is because all cars that would have used that small road can go Highland->Cutter->Summer now, instead of Elm->Summer.

It would still be possible to get to the Post office. From the intersection, it's about 700 feet longer to drive down Dover->Orchard->Day instead of Elm->Chester->Herbert. (1700' vs 1000', measured quickly on google maps).

Chester St will definitely be tricky. Lots of people have been concerned about it. There's lots of options to explore, from having a turnaround/loading zone that intrudes on the pedestrian space a bit, or pushing deliveries to off peak hours, or paving over the whole street with brick and sharing car/ped space there to gain the width of the sidewalks.
