Public Presentation of Alternate Community Path Extension Design

The Friends of the Community Path invite you to a Public Presentation of our Alternate Design for the Community Path Extension (CPX) along the Green Line Extension (GLX).

The Friends of the Community Path design for the CPX enjoys several advantages over that proposed by the Interim (now outgoing) GLX Team:

  • The FCP design keeps the CPX fully off-road and connecting to NorthPoint Path at 22 Water Street -- instead of eliminating the path from Washington Street to NorthPoint from the GLX project and re-routing it to a fast and polluted Route 28 McGrath/O'Brien Highway. Note that this eliminated CPX section is in the Environmental Justice section of East Somerville.

  • The FCP design maintains all CPX street access points -- instead of losing path-to-street access on the 0.8-mile stretch from School St. to Washington St.

  • The FCP design keeps the CPX on the one side of the corridor, which is safer and easier for crossings -- instead of zigzagging between the North and South side of the GLX corridor
