Our View Is About to Change

9 Dec

As early as mid-2018, Mass. DOT will begin realigning the Mass Pike, just across the river, and taking out the toll booths. The State will present its plans to Cambridge next Tuesday, December 15, 6-8pm at the Morse School (40 Granite St.). It is VERY IMPORTANT that residents and business owners attend to learn about the project and to:

  1. advocate for measures to quiet Soldiers Field Road and I-90 and;
  2. to extend the river parklands on the Boston side to serve as a visual and sound buffer for Cambridge. Magazine Beach and the Cambridge river parklands don’t need to be so noisy.

I-90 and Soldiers Field Road, just across from the park, will be realigned in the next years. See you at the IMPT meeting about this next Tuesday!

Over 100 people attended DOT’s presentation last night in Allston; mostly, they were concerned about connectivity issues since the realigned Pike is in their backyard. Please attend next Tuesday’s program to share your concerns. This project is a great opportunity to make Cambridge quieter.
