City Council

Since 2014, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has been planning the Allston Multimodal Improvement Project, which will transform road, railway, and land use patterns along Interstate 90, and create new planning opportunities.

The Secretary of MassDOT formally requested the substitutions of the Modified All At-Grade Option in place of the at-grade throat option presented in the Scoping Summary Report. The Modified All At-Grade Option contains a wider version of the Paul Dudley White Path on a boardwalk, as well as a wider “living shoreline” at the edge of the Charles River.

Building decking above I-90 and all tracks would better knit the neighborhoods together with the consistent goal of achieving true transit-oriented development, and minimizing the noise pollution and air pollution impacts on the abutting residential neighborhoods.

The Council adopted a resolution urging MassDOT to offer due diligence and serious consideration to design elements which prioritize a livable, walkable, and bikeable riverbank and parkland for all.

The public comment period for the Allston Multimodal Improvement Project ends on October 30, 2020.
