Join WalkBoston, the Charles River Conservancy, the Charles River Watershed Association, and others for a site walk of the Charles River path’s “Throat” area.
We’ll meet at ‘BU Beach’ (grassy area on Boston University Campus near Marsh Chapel) in front of the pedestrian overpass to the Charles River path. From there, we’ll walk along the path to the River Street Bridge to look at the existing conditions along the path and river bank. The path isn't wide, and we'll be there after work with people heading home on bike and foot along the path; we'll remind everyone at the start to stay right and walk no more than 2 people wide.
This will give you a better understanding of why this narrow stretch has an outsized role in MassDOT’s Allston I-90 Interchange Project — and how it could help #UnchokeTheThroat in the years to come.
Getting to the meet up location by transit:
Green Line ‘B’ Branch – BU Central stop
57/57A – Commonwealth Ave @ Granby stop
More details to be added! RSVP on Eventbrite or on Facebook
