City Council adopts resolution on Allston Multimodal Improvement Project
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.
