unnamedDo you live, work, socialize or commute in and around Sullivan Square? Are you interested in helping weigh options  for future transportation improvements in the area?

Join MassDOT, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), and the cities of Boston, Everett, and Somerville for an interactive public forum on Monday, September 25th, Partners Building in Assembly Row, 399 Revolution Drive, Somerville, at Assembly Station on the Orange Line.

The neighborhoods around Sullivan Square are growing. How can we make sure that people can move around the area as smoothly as possible? This project is trying to answer that question. MassDOT, MAPC, and the Cities have analyzed ten different combinations of infrastructure and policy changes to improve mobility in the area.

Options examined include new and refined public transportation options, roadway infrastructure improvements, new bicycle and pedestrian amenities, and policies to encourage fewer car trips and reduce commuter congestion. The Working Group developed these options based on community feedback received during the past fall and winter. Potential funding options are also being studied. Now, State and City leaders need your input to determine which projects and policies to recommend.

The September 25th public forum is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served. Childcare, translation and interpretation are all available upon request.

Agenda:

  • 5:45 PM – Open House Showcasing Transportation Options
  • 6:30 PM – Presentation
  • 7:00 PM – Gather Public Input
