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:
- advocate for measures to quiet Soldiers Field Road and I-90 and;
- 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.
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.
