That is why we are tracking and directly involved in more than 80 transportation projects in the Boston metro area. Learn more about our Street Projects here!
The state is planning a major project to renovate the Allston entrance and exit of the Mass Pike. The result could be 60 new acres of developable land, a new commuter rail station, a new neighborhood, and an unparalleled opportunity to improve connectivity for everyone walking, biking, driving and taking public transportation throughout the region.Learn More
The McGrath/O'Brien Highway is a section of Massachusetts State Route 28, passing through densely populated residential areas of Cambridge and Somerville. As part of a state repair project, MassDOT is planning to make additional surface improvements for people to make it safer and easier to walk, bike, take the bus, and drive, when originally the only plan was to repair the structure. Current drawings show new and improved intersections, buffered bicycle lanes, designated areas for buses, improved traffic signals, and the closing of ramps and tunnels.Learn More
Thanks to the hard work of LivableStreets, our partner advocacy groups, and the public, the stretch of Comm. Ave. from the BU bridge to Packard’s Corner now includes protected bike lanes, raised crosswalks, improved bus stops, and transit signal priority for the Green Line and 57 bus. This is a landmark improvement, and a big victory for the 100,000 people using Comm Ave daily. The BU Bridge intersection is being redesigned next, and LivableStreets will continue to monitor all the phases of this project from planning to public process to construction.Learn More
